Millennium women in medicine & media: Priya Raja #TEDMED





Priya Raja is a second year medical student at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas and this year is a fellow in the Stanford-ABC News Fellowship in Media and Global Health. She’s policy focused and understands the power of multimedia and storytelling in influencing health and health policy. As a fellow, she spent time earlier this year in New Dehli reporting on the World Health’s Organization’s celebration of India’s most recent public health achievement, the elimination of yaws, a chronic disfiguring infectious disease. She shares that people say “yaws begans where the road ends” implying it hits populations hardest in the most impoverished communities globally.
