The Tallberg Foundation has announced the five 2015 Global Leaders “selected by an international panel from more than 200 nominees and 56 nations. These women and men – each in a most extraordinary way – demonstrate the kind of leadership required by the challenges of the 21st century. By honoring them, the foundation seeks to draw attention to their work and to illuminate the skills and traits of leadership that they exemplify.” I am gratified and excited for my friend and colleague, Jason Glaser of La Isla Foundation, who is among this years recipients. He is the reason that I’ve gotten so deeply involved in the CKDnT work that I am so passionate about. This award is richly deserved for a true change maker. Congratulations, Jason!
“Jason Glaser’s work blends scientific research, advocacy, publicity, business innovation and community development to address the widespread consequences in Central America and elsewhere of chronic kidney disease of non-traditional causes (CKDnT). The Foundation is an international research and policy NGO working at the intersection of public health and human rights to address a fatal epidemic of CKDnT among sugarcane workers in Latin America.” Read more here.
