Hans Rosling: A Tribute

Such sad news, the death of such a great man. May his legacy and influence live on. As a clinician, as a statistician who informed scholars and audiences world over, and a researcher whose work on economic development and global health changed the way we view our world. It’s hard to lose a role model but I can’t help but feel he was lost too soon. RIP Dr Hans Rosling.

I feel that it’s apt to share one of his oldest (but still my favourite) TED talk. He was a clinician and statistician whose research and accessible insights changed the way we view the world, and our understandings of the complex relationships between development and health.
