“Rejecting the premise that healthcare is something devised by experts and imposed on patients, Veronica has created an environment where chronically ill patients command respect and can make decisions about their own health.”
Health care for the future will require a great many diverse models to choose from as each region of the earth is diverse and distinctive requiring approaches that reflect their particular needs. Veronica as a “Social Enterpeneur” in the field of Health Care has demonstrated how “the most powerful force for change in the world is a new idea in the hands of a leading social entrepreneur.”
Such actions are an inspiration to us all to become “Social Entrepeneurs” in our own communitys.
The NGO for the day is Ashoka at http://www.ashoka.org
is to shape a citizen sector that is entrepreneurial, productive and globally integrated, and to develop the profession of social entrepreneurship around the world.”
