In this episode, in August 2009, we were joined by Dr. Evan Lyon (left), an Associate Physician at the Division of Global Health Equity and an Instructor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Lyon is also an Editor of the Journal of Health and Human Rights. He has worked extensive in Haiti since 1996 on behalf of the renowned Partners in Health organization, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts and co-founded by Dr. Paul Farmer.
Dr. Lyon talks with us about health inequalities, as well as several projects he has been working on (including a fascinating prison project).
UPDATE: Be sure to check out Episode 303, in which Dr. Lyon returned to Radio Rounds to speak about the Partners in Health relief efforts following the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti… and also Episode 412, in which Dr. Lyon discusses the October 2010 cholera outbreak in Haiti.
