Many people who work in the medical industry come to it for personal reasons. For scientist and hardware hacker Erik Douglas, his stint helping diagnose patients in the remotest parts of Africa and Asia was a pivotal moment. It led him to realize that he could use what he learned about healthcare in the field to make a difference in healthcare in American homes.

Thus Erik went from building technology that makes scientists’ lives easier to developing and selling one that makes parent’s lives easier. As co-founder and CEO of CellScope, Erik has been at the forefront of the movement towards digital diagnostics, enabling accessible care from anywhere and helping parents more proactively address their child’s medical conditions—in this case chronic ear infections—in a way that helps physicians listen.

David and I hope you enjoy the program.
