Empathy to Action with Kristen Valdes on 10/8/2019

Empathy to Action explores the ways that empathy can spur people to action, expose faults in the system, and lead to social innovation. Join us as we welcome Kristen Valdes, founder of b.well Connected Health, a health app that unifies all of your healthcare data in one place. Kristen's middle child, Bailey, suffers from an autoimmune disorder. Together, they experienced countless misdiagnoses, repeat procedures, and diagnoses based on siloed health data. Kristen's own battles with the healthcare system in fighting for Bailey's health, led her to found b.well, which is based in the Grid. RSVP: https://umbforms.wufoo.com/forms/zoqsxnf1e33vu2/
