The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
I have devoted by a lot of my time on expect regulars. So some of the things that I did this year, for example, is we did a case competition, me and two classmates for provider network where we had to develop a strategic plan for how they could grow and bring more impact to patients. So that was one thing, the second thing that I did is I've been involved with two incubators, one called mesh and the other one called activates now called nuclear. Uh so I met I was a program director which means that I kind of coordinated the teams that we're working with residents at Mass General Hospital to develop all kinds of mostly medical devices or Health X. Solutions. So it was more of the coordinating team and seeing that the team's got what they need with Nuclear Eight. I did something called Nuclear Echo which is applying life sciences sustainability issues. Um because I believe the life sciences has a lot of impact, that's what I like. So I got to work for PhD at M. I. T. On growing plant based materials in lab. I'm still working with that PhD. It's been an amazing experience to get exposure to venture capital. Why when do you incorporate? There's many things you learn. Another thing I did was get involved with the clubs, uh and through the healthcare clubs, I was part of one of the panel directors for the healthcare conference, which happens annually and is extremely a beautiful event. My panel was called from local to global perspectives on a pandemic response. What I really wanted to do is try to um bring international leaders from different countries that have very different settings than the U. S. And different health care systems and expose them to expose the HBs. Community to these leaders. Uh we let the UK vaccine task force and he's an H. B. S. Alum. We got to have dr chick way um who is the head of the Nigerian cBc. It was and I think this is something unique to HBs that you just get to email those people and invite them to be together on a panel and have someone from the UK from India from Nigeria and the U. S. Presents to people from all over the world.
