PKN Providence Vol. 8

Last week's PechaKucha Night in Providence Vol. 8 had the theme of "social entrepreneurship," and organizer Stephanie Gerson fills us on the evening that was. October 28th, 2009 witnessed our 8th PechaKucha Night in Providence. (Indeed, we coincided with Pittsboro, North Carolina, Tromsø, Norway, and of course, the big Design Week PechaKucha Night in Tokyo!) Our theme was social entrepreneurship, which was chosen to generate momentum for the Social Enterprise Summit at Bryant University on November 12th, and for an exciting announcement about Providence that Ashoka – the largest network of social entrepreneurs in the world – will be making at the Summit. We were wowed by an impressive diversity of local social entrepreneurs, but if I must select a few to highlight, allow me to plug two who’ll be part of the Summit. Graduating senior from Brown and Runa co-founder Charlie Harding described Runa, a hybrid for-profit and non-profit foundation based in Providence and Ecuador, that generates revenue from an energizing drink made of a native rainforest plant in order to conserve Amazonian ecosystems and provide sustainable employment for the local population. By virtue of producing (and in turn, consuming) Runa’s drink, native Amazonian people are employed and ecosystems stewarded. Family physician, community organizer, author, and (yes, and) Managing Director of Health Access RI Dr. Michael Fine discussed the trials and tribulations of national health care reform, the importance of primary care, and a brilliant yet simple model for providing primary care, namely Health Access RI, the first organization of subscription medical practices in the United States to provide affordable primary care to people without employer-provided health insurance. Dr. Fine announced HARI’s campaign to grow to 10,000 members by 2010, which will create the leverage necessary to bring a big insurer (like Blue Cross Blue Shield, or somebody new!) to sell inexpensive high-deductible major medical insurance in Rhode Island. This combination of primary care from Health Access RI and high-deductible insurance would give Rhode Islanders the health care they need – world-class primary care in our neighborhoods from our family doctors, along with financial protection in case of illness or injury. Both Runa and Health Access RI will be vendors in the Social Enterprise Summit’s Good Marketplace of socially responsible goods and services. But of course, all the presentations were fantastic, and if you’d like to check the work of eight local social entrepreneurs, the lineup can be found on the Providence city page. Yeehaw for social entrepreneurs in Providence!

Health of Africa

In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Memphis, TN Vol. 6), graduate student Susannah Acuff talks about her journey from pre-med to anthropology. She began by shadowing her grandfather, a physician, in free clinics, and examined the cultural opinions and use of health care and insurance, which eventually led her to Africa, where she examined alternative models for health insurance, instead of the for-profit model found in the United States.
