Two doctors on a mission, a hero’s journey, to bring first-world neurosurgery to low-income countries around the world. To enlist young neurosurgery students into the effort to decolonize global public health systems, creating more equitable distribution for all. This concept gave birth to Mission:Brain. A non-profit founded by Dr. Michael Lawton and Dr. Alfredo Quinones, known fondly as Dr Q.
Dr. Q connects the world of healthcare to STEM education and the vital role of mentoring to foster greater participation in these careers in all parts of our community. This dynamic docuseries will tell the story of Mission:Brain from its origins to its growing commitment to the equitable distribution of healthcare delivery systems all over the world.
Mars Helicopter – Ingenuity:
How do you build a helicopter that will survive in temperatures below -140° F? And fly through the extra thin Martian atmosphere, all while powering itself? Solving problems like these is all in a days’ work for mechanical engineer Sergio Valdez.
