Working to improve the health of children in rural Guatemala

Last week, we wrote about a medical student working with Stanford pediatrician Paul Wise, MD, MPH, on a program that uses nutritional supplements and health education to save the lives of young Guatemalan children. This Stanford Health Policy video expands on the work of Wise, principal investigator of the Children in Crisis Initiative, who has spent 40 years working to improve the health of children in some of the world’s poorest and most remote regions. It also highlights his team's recent innovation: the development of an app that makes nutrition surveillance easier, faster and more accurate for those in the field.
