“When I was your age…”
takes on a whole new meaning when the person saying it has made Forbe’s 30 Under 30 list. A little intimidating, a lot impressive!
The 30 Under 30 2018: Healthcare list features entrepreneurs, physicians, and even a few students. The youngest honoree appears to be Cathy Tie from Toronto, Canada. She published her first research paper at the age of just 16! Five years later, she owns the company Ranomics, which tracks gene variants to facilitate healthcare organizations and clinical labs with their information management. Another organization, Healthify, was founded by 4 young visionaries (Manik Bhatt, Eric Connor, Daniel Levenson, and Alex Villa) and works with the nations largest insurers to connect Medicaid recipients with social services.
The list of impressive contributors goes on and on- research into non-hormonal male contraceptives, a diagnostic test to measure drug adherence, testing nanoparticles to reverse muscle atrophy, a wearable device to discourage smokers from lighting up when they are about to relapse, the streamlining of patients for clinical trials, and altering your own white blood cells to target cancer…
I had a pretty fun time scrolling through these projects–it’s encouraging to see the heart, smarts, and collaboration towards truly life-changing work.
