The ?! moment I’ve witnessed the most Audacity:
Our healthcare clients are dreaming big to unlock their innovation moonshot. I’m inspired every day to partner with them to achieve their audacious goals and help change patient’s lives. On one of my first projects with ?What If!, we endeavored to revolutionize the stem cell collection process for people living with Multiple Myeloma. To understand the patient journey, we personally donated platelets and physically walked through a NYC hospital to trace their experience – from diagnosis on Day 1 to Day 99, post-transplant. The experience was transformative – both for us and for our client. By putting ourselves in the “patient’s shoes,” we achieved a new level of understanding that helped us drive solutions beyond the pill. This experience also led to us develop the ?What If! Healthcare Podcast “Being Me” to showcase the power of insight to fuel new perspectives and ideas.
