Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2013
    This description of Takashi Kawazoe's work was prepared when Takashi Kawazoe was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2013.
    Takashi Kawazoe is extending access to health care in Japan through new career paths for nurses working outside hospital walls. A key element of his approach is a system of self-check medical stations where patients access information about their health and preventative health measures; quickly, inexpensively, and locally.
