Josh Nesbit was a pre-medical undergraduate student at Stanford when he spent the summer working at St. Gabriel’s hospital in rural Malawi. He observed patients walking up to 100 miles to see the hospital’s single doctor and community health workers walking over 30 miles to deliver reports by hand. He also observed stronger cell phone reception in the Malawian rural village than back home in California. The next time he returned to the hospital, he was carrying a suitcase of $10 Nokia phones.
The impact of communication was undeniable. He then joined forces with co-founder Isaac Holeman, and Medic Mobile was born.
