My cover story with The Daily Show's Trevor Noah is out today! He and I chatted about how he severely bruised his vocal cords—then defied doctors' orders to refrain from speaking—just days before he headlined the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 in his hometown of Johannesburg, South Africa, an event that raised more than $7 billion to eradicate extreme poverty. Read about Noah's subsequent surgery and vocal recovery, his tough childhood during Apartheid's waning days, his remarkable rise to stardom, and how losing his voice could not prevent him from raising it, or awareness, for the world's most vulnerable people. See pg. 31 in the digital issue of WebMD Magazine.
