“We are all able to make change. All of us are able to make change.” As a paediatric infectious, tropical disease and global health specialist, Dr. Anna Banerji (MD’89) has been guided by this philosophy throughout her entire career caring for, researching and advocating on behalf of the world’s most vulnerable children.
