How Kristin is building a better working world

“Healthy people build better working worlds, and this is my passion inside and outside of work.

Precision medicine is a gateway to efficient, affordable healthcare for everyone, but there are regions of the world that simply lack access and infrastructure to support the targeted approaches we are celebrating. We must join forces globally to bring precision medicine to all.”
