About having our own health in our hands-- something not really possible today. Think about it, we need a doctor's permission/order to get lab results on OUR OWN bodies! "Access to health" to me is more about getting everything I need to know in a way that is faster, more convenient, less cumbersome, less expensive, and more appealing. This is radically powerful.
The future of health will be transformed by consumers like you and I. We are a means for new breakthroughs; a leading indicator for the work of researchers and clinicians. Citizen scientists will accelerate or even replace components of today's (yesterday's!) clinical trials.
Change the language to change the game. "Consumers" in any industry command power, respect, and focus-- this is yet to come to health. Health consumers can incite revolution.
Many friends and decades of data, experience, validation!
Hi, I'm interested in taking health interests and hobbies to startup and commercial stage, both thru my work with the X PRIZE Foundation and bringing consumer medical devices to market.
