Includes an encore airing of our January interview with Stan Brock.
Listeners of A Better World may know about the death on August 29, 2018 of Stan Brock. Stan was the founder of Remote Area Medical and former co-host of the late 1960s and 1970s NBC show, ‘Wild Kingdom.’
Remote Area Medical (RAM) was initially founded in 1968 to serve as a safety net provider of free medical care in remote areas of developing countries, but it wasn’t long before Brock began receiving requests to operate medical clinics in the United States. Today, more than 740,000 people have received free care from 960 of Brock’s RAM expeditions. RAM still operates a free, year-round, air ambulance program in Guyana, providing emergency medical transportation to villagers in need of immediate health care services. Brock was recognized as a CNN Hero in 2012, and in 2017 the Lions Club International Foundation recognized him with the Lions International Humanitarian Award.
In recognition of his life of service we share this encore airing of a January 2018 interview with Stan Brock.
