The Schwab Foundation has selected BroadReach Healthcare co-founders Dr. John Sargent and Dr. Ernest Darkoh as 2015 Schwab Foundation Social Entrepreneurs for Social Entrepreneurship.
Both Dr. Sargent and Dr. Darkoh have worked for years to effect sustainable social change by creating scalable innovations to strengthen global healthcare delivery and their work is being recognized after a rigorous selection process to identify the world’s most noteworthy social entrepreneurs.
Dr. Sargent and Dr. Darkoh are also former Fulbrighters and Dr. Sargent currently sits on the Fulbright Association Board of Directors.
The prestigious recognition is given to social entrepreneurs working in the fields of health, education, employment, gender, finance and environmental sustainability.
Responding to their selection, Sargent notes, “The impact and work of the social entrepreneur depends on a number of factors, importantly the contributions and work of those around them and the partnerships they enjoy. In Ernest’s and my instance, this includes the many people at BroadReach Healthcare who help make our vision a reality in sometimes trying and often uncertain circumstances. We thank them all. We also thank the Schwab Foundation for this recognition of our work in contributing to the delivery of the fundamental human right of effective and accessible healthcare, and for opening the doors to what we believe will be further enriching partnerships with other social entrepreneurs entering, or already part of, the Schwab network.”
