In episode 18 of ReBootHealth, I speak with Crystal Phillips, Health Lead of Thin Air Labs. This pod was a bit different from my normal format. Crystal kindly agreed to have a meandering chat on a few topics that I wanted to dive deeper into. She was willing to talk about her diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) and how it impacted her Olympic speed skating hopes, her journey into the healthcare world, launching Branch Out Foundation for research in neurological sciences, her foray into the world of venture capital and her thoughts and future perspective on the role of data in healthcare. Thanks, Crystal, for being a great role model for others in the face of adversity and a prime example of the diversity that we have and need in health innovation, and finally, for being willing to experiment with a new interviewing style with me!  If you want to connect with Crystal, I’ve provided some links in the show notes. As always, I hope you find the episode valuable.
