Kinari Webb, who earned a BA in biology at Reed, founded Health In Harmony, an innovative and holistic approach to solving issues such as poverty, subpar healthcare, deforestation, lack of education, and endangered species protection. Through conservation incentives in the form of high quality, low cost health care, constant dialogue with the community, and practical livelihood trainings, Kinari is changing the face of global healthcare and conservation. She will speak about the path she has taken from orangutan research to medical school to starting a health clinic and an environmental nonprofit in Indonesian Borneo.
