The role of doctors in our societies is changing. Once seen as defenders of society - especially the weaker people in society - today many doctors see themselves and business people. But what does the logic of what makes a healthy business practice have to do with what makes a healthy human being? 

Dr. Vikas Bajpai has been both a medical doctor and an advocate for social justice for most of his life. He's worked in towns and villages all over India as well as in mainstream institutions such as the Jawaharlal Nehru Univeristy - whose Centre for Social Medicine and Community Health he currently works with. Join us as he leads us on a discussion of what it means to be a social justice champion and a medical practitioner in the 21st century.
