Fellow Since 2010
This description of Frank Hoffmann's work was prepared when Frank Hoffmann was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2010.
Dr. Frank Hoffmann pioneers a diagnostically superior, personal, low-cost breast examination method by training blind people as skilled diagnosticians. Frank’s approach integrates them into the primary health care infrastructure, while enhancing women’s health care experience and opening an entirely new professional path to a differently-abled constituency.
