Voices of Global Health: Lisa Cohen

by Helen Holter

Lisa Cohen_WGHA In an earlier lifetime, Lisa Cohen and I worked at KIRO-TV, the CBS affiliate in Seattle, Washington. Lisa was a driven news producer, earning respect and admiration of her colleagues with her focus and attention to details — and details matter in TV news.

In this WGHA blog post from “Voices of Global Health,” Lisa tells her story about life beyond TV news and into the world of global health as founder and executive director of Washington Global Health Alliance (WGHA).

Highlights: Traveling to Africa with the Gates Foundation. The power of simple ideas, like Uniject syringes. Working with smart, dedicated people. Helping deliver a baby in Africa.
