Episode 40: Empowering Patients using Healthtech Interconnectivity with Dr. Muri Raifu Part 1

Autumn Glocal Citizens!

For the next two episodes, we’ll be visiting with healthtech entrepreneur and neurosurgeon, Dr. Muri Raifu. Muri is another Ghana native, by way of Nigeria. A scholar-athlete at Amherst College in Massachusetts, in addition to his medical training Muri also received his MPA from Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. Currently based in Los Angeles, California, Muri is blazing a trail both in his private practice, and his start-up Talamus Health which is in the business of improving and unifying healthcare delivery in emerging markets, helping patients interact with and share their health information with a connected circle of providers.

Since launching in 2018, Talamus is emerging as a go to solution for health service providers partnering with more than 1,000 healthcare providers across Africa. Other notable early achievements include being named Most Scalable SME at the United Nations ITU Global Awards in 2018 and making Fast Company’s 50 Most Innovative Companies in the World list in 2019. This conversation is another Glocal Citizens gem where we take a seat on a coming of age and career tour with Muri from Ghana, across the US and back, across Africa.
