Show Notes 

 Today’s show will be a bit different from our normal “interview” format. Today I want to talk about how to begin saving the lives of more than 800,000 children under 5 worldwide. Although my focus will be on the country of Uganda win which I have worked for the last 3 years.

Last night I was watching a documentary on Netflix, titled “Decoding Bill’s Brain,” which is all about Bill Gates. While I thought the documentary would be kind of an overview of Bill Gates’ accomplishments a neuro-processes, it turned out to be quite different.

About half the show was on how Bill thinks and processes data, but the other half of the show was about a subject very dear to me personally: Diarrhea and Infant Mortality, which is a primary area of focus for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Bill Gates, who seems to read about 15 books per week, discovered that Diarrhea kills approximately 2200 children every day—more than AIDS, malaria, and measles combined. That’s 800,000 children that die every year due to diarrhea.
