Health Digest - Who will be the next Newton?

Issue #20 — View online — Suggest a link

The latest news and information about innovations in healthcare.

Hi there,
I hope that you and your loved ones are all safe and healthy.
These times are surely uncertain and very particular. However, it is worth remembering that the best innovations are born in times of crisis. Now is the time for all of us, engineers, doctors and entrepreneurs, to work on ingenious solutions and show unprecedented solidarity. Newton modeled gravity during the black plague pandemic, and Turing thought of the computer during WW2. It is in these tough times that creativity and genius can expand their potential.
Stay safe and #StayHome,
