In 2011, following the devastating earthquakes in Haiti, Donato founded Health eVillages, a program now residing at the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Human Rights and funded through Physicians Interactive. It provides state-of-the-art mobile health technology, including medical reference and clinical decision support resources, to medical professionals in the most challenging clinical environments around the world. For example, with help from Health eVillages, health workers have been able to reduce infant mortality in the East African village of Lwala by two-thirds, from 100 to 35 deaths per one thousand births.
Donato—along with Hillary Clinton, Robert De Niro and Tony Bennett— is a 2014 laureate of the prestigious Robert F. Kennedy Ripple of Hope Award honoring his more than 30 years of business and activist healthcare initiatives contributing to positive social change.
