When Jack Andraka was 15 years old, he didn't know what a pancreas was. Now, this teenager has created a test for the early detection of pancreatic cancer that, while still in the preliminary stages, looks promising. So how did he become an health innovator?
Andraka tells the story during Session 6 of TED2013.
