A Partnership to Eliminate Malaria with Elaine Gibbons and Neal Myrick

Malaria exists in 103 countries worldwide, affecting 3.3. billion people, but about 90% of malaria-related deaths occur in Sub-Saharan Africa. The majority of those affected are children under the age of five.   In the US, about 1,500 cases of malaria are found every year.  PATH is a nonprofit creating vaccines, finding treatments, inventing faster diagnostic tools, piloting new approaches, and putting data to work in completely new ways to prevent and stop outbreaks of malaria.   We will hear from Elaine Gibbons, Vice President of Global Engagement and Communications with PATH, as well as Neal Myrick, Global Head of Tableau Foundation, as they discuss lessons learned from the collaboration to address and help eliminate one of the world’s deadliest diseases.
