• Our Story

    Once upon a time, two aspiring doctors, one policy nerd and an engineer met at the Stanford Design School. They were randomly assigned to work together on a class project. Little did they know when they embarked on this journey, that several years later this same class project would turn into their passion, an organization that they would co-lead together to bring the change they wished to see in the world. Little did they know they had met their "professional soulmates" and were slowly finding a tribe of people dedicated to transforming healthcare as we know it.

     

    Along the way they met people of like heart and mind, that possessed incredible talents. The team grew into a village of experts, designers, technologists, and great minds - all headed towards building ways of enabling people to be agents of their own health and wellbeing.

     

    Quickly, the group became more of a family than a team that believes, with conviction, in the power of family to heal.

    We aren't a team, so much as a community of people that believe in the mission and work.  Thank you to our supporters, mentors and advisors who have joined us on this journey, and who provide us with invaluable guidance.
