I am interested in the intersection point of healthcare policy and genetics. Specifically, how will technology help solve longstanding issues in our healthcare system, whether it be disease burden (chronic diseases), healthcare access (EHR) or preventative medicine (data analytics). Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, I've lived and worked in Beijing for four years. I'm happy to connect with persons interested in learning more about the healthcare sector in China as well, and have started an organization (Beijing Health Forum) to serve as an initial source of connections to find a pulse of healthcare in Beijing.
