The Best Of Our Knowledge #1233

TBOOK #1233

Recently, the technology company Qualcomm announced a 10 million dollar prize to anyone who can invent a medical tricorder.  That's right, the machine that Dr. McCoy used in Star Trek to diagnose everything from  Rigellian Fever to the Phage. The thing is, doctors are already using hand held technology to do some diagnosis...smart phone.

Today on the Best Of Our Knowledge, we'll hear how doctors in Africa are using smart phones to fight disease.

We'll also hear about a hip hop MC who is using music to teach boys to be men...and spend an academic minute gassing up the galaxy.
