January 23, 2020In this episode, Dan Mollura, MD, Founder and CEO of RAD-AID International, shares his journey from Wall Street to Johns Hopkins Radiology and NIH Radiology, culminating in his founding of RAD-AID, a global health nonprofit for radiology capacity-building in medically underserved communities throughout the world. Dan talks about how his very first experiences working in international trade, finance, and the United Nations, led to the Goldman Sachs Investment Research Department which shaped his passion for helping patients as a radiologist and physician research scientist at Johns Hopkins and National Institutes of Health (NIH). He describes how his founding and leadership of RAD-AID draws upon his passion for understanding and addressing the intricacies of poverty, disease, and limited health care resources, while also drawing upon his business skills from Wall Street to develop organizational strategies to tackle the complex challenges of economic development and service-delivery amidst scarcity. He taps his experience in leading a radiology artificial intelligence (AI) research lab and as a clinical radiologist to engage the rapid evolution of AI in health care in order for RAD-AID to proactively channel AI as a potentially powerful vehicle for empowering resource-poor hospitals and patients. Dan articulates a vision for RAD-AID and for his career in which the strong forces of economics, science, technology and health care are interwoven to strive towards social inclusion, international cooperation, and health equity.
