Next-gen health care
Photographer Leyla Emektar captured this portrait of a nursing student in Kocaeli, Turkey, administering eye drops to her grandfather. Her grandmother sits beside her, looking on. The image earned Emektar the Healthcare Information for All Healthcare Providers Award, part of the 2018 Photoshare Photo Contest. "It captures a tender moment that evokes the tradition of cross-generational care within the family—so important, and yet we do not often see it," wrote the category's judges. Photoshare, a collection of more than 30,000 global health and development photos, is run by the Knowledge for Health Project, led by the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs.
