Josh Nesbit

Josh was an undergraduate student when he began working at St. Gabriel’s Hospital in rural Malawi. He observed patients walking up to 100 miles to see the hospital’s single doctor and community health workers walking over 30 miles to deliver updates on patients. He also observed stronger cell phone reception in the Malawian rural village than back home in California. The next time he returned to the hospital, he was carrying a suitcase of $10 Nokia phones. The impact of communication and better support for frontline health workers was clear. He joined forces with co-founder Isaac Holeman, and Medic Mobile was born.
