Geprgia Banjo is currently a correspondent for The Economist and you can read her cover story about Britain's NHS (National Health Service) here. Long before joining The Economist she was dealt a serious, perspective changing health event herself, encephalitis. She was only 16 at the time and after university and when she deemed she was "recovered" she decided she wanted to help people with brain injuries by working as a Brain Injury Support worker for the Headway, a brain injury association in the UK.

We talk about the effect brain injury can have on lives, including each of ours, perspective and the long-term effects of concussions, per her reporting on a February episode of Babbage, an Economist science and tech podcast. We talk about the rugby player Alix Popham (Episode 139) and signs he displayed that induced him to find out more about the health of his brain.

You can read Geogia's excellent insightful writing at The Economist. Her recent article is the cover story, tackling fixing Britain's National Health Service. No mean feat, with many similarities to Canada's health care system.
