Dr. Donald Hopkins

Dr. Donald Hopkins helped wipe smallpox from the planet. He won’t rest until he’s done the same for Guinea worm disease.

As special advisor for Guinea worm eradication at the Atlanta-based Carter Center, Hopkins insists the end is close and says he won’t retire until Guinea worm is completely wiped from the planet. “There’s no way I can stop,” he says. “I've got the tiger by the tail and I can’t let go.”
