Aaron Berkowitz: "Meeting Paul Farmer"
Aaron Berkowitz, Partners In Health’s neurology advisor, wrote a tribute to Paul Farmer. The following is an excerpt:
“His writings, the organization he built, and the community of practice he created will continue to inspire generations to serve those less fortunate than them, fight for health equity, and do what is good and just. But for those of us who had the chance to meet him even briefly, he will also inspire us to do as he did: lock eyes with everyone we meet, slow down the handshake, truly see the person in front of us, listen to them, and thank them for the work they do.”
