I am both honored and looking forward to serving as a judge for the @HITLAB Fall 2022 Breakthrough Alliance Innovators Challenge!

The Challenge, held in New York City is a competition looking for the world’s most innovative developing and early commercial digital health technologies that solve significant gaps in health care.
