Episode Description

According to the National Institutes of Health, as many as 25 million Americans – about 1 in 13 people - suffer from a rare or undiagnosed condition. People with these diseases often spend years being shuffled between doctors and specialists, feeling as if they are in an endless loop of siloed care that rarely gives answers to unexplained conditions. In 2018, I become one of these people. At the time, I had no idea that I would use my cybersecurity background to save my own life or that I would eventually be diagnosed with a life altering disease that threw me into a tumultuous medical journey that would change the course of my life, and in turn give me the opportunity to help save the lives of many other people like me. On our debut show, join me as I share my medical journey, along with guests Nina Alli, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Biohacking Village, and Dr. Toby Gouker, Executive Vice President at First Healthcare and Adjunct Faculty at the University of Maryland. We’ll discuss alternate healthcare methods, the convergence of technology and healthcare, and the world of biohacking. We’ll talk about what works, what doesn’t, what’s next, and what we can do about it all.
