BABEWATCH: TED Fellow And Embrace Co-Founder Jane Chen

September 28th, 2010 | 1 comment | Posted by Jen

Name: Jane Chen

Occupation: Co-founder of Embrace, a non-profit that makes a low-cost, life-saving infant warmer, and TEDIndia Fellow

Why She’s a Babe: Jane Chen is a good-looking do-gooder. Not only is she a babe, but she’s helping to save the life of babes in the traditional sense of the word with the Embrace Infant Warmer, which looks like a mini-sleeping bag and can perform the role of an incubator for babies born prematurely at less than 1% of the cost of a traditional incubator–$25 versus upwards of $20,000. Chen and her team of Amazians plan on piloting the Infant Warmer in India before introducing it to other developing countries. And anyone saving babies–a bit of an obsession of ours, we’ll admit–is beautiful in our book.

Watch Jane’s TEDTalk in which she explains how the infant warmer works:
