Kathryn Everton, MD
Dr. Kathryn Everton is spearheading the formation and development of a robust program at RAD-AID to provide indigent women access to key healthcare services in the developing world. Kathryn Everton and Anna Starikovsky Nordvig are co-directors of RAD-AID India, and they are currently designing the new women’s health program for Northern India called Asha Jyoti.
Asha Jyoti ("Ray of Hope" in Hindi and Punjabi) is a collaboration with Philips Healthcare and PGIMER, Chandigarh to create a unique outreach service for marginalized women ages 45 and over. The program offers an innovative comprehensive program to screen women for osteoporosis, breast cancer and cervical cancer in a specially designed mobile van manufactured by Philips Healthcare. This program was officially announced at the Champions of Action Session of the Clinton Global Initiative in September 2012. This public-private-NGO partnership to offer new health care solutions is a cornerstone of RAD-AID's strategy to integrate economic development, healthcare advancement, and medical technology.
