No Out-of-Network Doctors

Today on Tablet, a look at Stephen Kutner’s nonprofit

Print Email
(JHI)

Today on Tablet, Benyamin Cohen reports on Stephen Kutner, the man behind the nonprofit organization Jewish Healthcare International. Kutner is now retiring, but his organization still reaches Jewish patients from Addis Ababa to Kiev.

The decision didn’t come easy for Kutner, who single-handedly stitched together JHI’s financial framework, cobbling together annual grants from Jewish Federations up and down the East Coast. The group works on a shoestring budget—about $450,000 a year—and Kutner actually convinced fellow doctors to pay their own way for the jaunts to far-off countries by explaining to them that these trips were life-changing opportunities: After all, one had been so for him.

Check out the rest here.
