Before joining the founders at Next Steps, Wayne was involved in running the HealthStore Foundation, which manages a network of nurse-owned and operated pharmacy clinics in Kenya (WRI funded and edited a case study of the HealthStore model – read it in the Resources section).

Wayne sent me job descriptions – attached to this post – for researchers and business analysts. The positions are here in the Washington, DC area and seem to be geared towards up and coming BOP thinkers. From the description:
