        Rebecca Onie, Public Health Entrepreneur | MacArthur Fellows Program

        In this interview, 2009 MacArthur Fellow Rebecca Onie talks about her experience as a public health entrepreneur building a low-cost healthcare model that addresses the link between poverty and poor health. Health Leads (formerly Project HEALTH), which she co-founded while a college sophomore, is designed to challenge the barriers to good health for low-income families. Today, Health Leads has hundreds of volunteers helping thousands of families each year at pediatric sites in Boston, Providence, New York, Baltimore, Washington, DC and Chicago. This resource is part of the MacArthur Fellows Program Collection.
