Mia Birdsong of Family Story is addressing the entrenched problem of poverty a new way--by starting with redefining what we think of as a 'traditional' family.   

In Part 2 of "Redefining Family," Pam Scott is a philanthropist using human-centered design in sub-Saharan Africa to find ways to reduce the unwanted teen pregnancy rate there from 50% to a 'new normal.'
