Sharoon, welcome onboard the team as our Digital Health Today Ambassador!

    1. Tell us a bit more about yourself, your background and what you’re doing now.

      I’m from Dallas, Texas but I currently reside in Baltimore, Maryland. I’m working as Pre-Doctoral fellow at Johns Hopkins Bayview where I work closely with a very talented physician PI. Together we are researching innovative ways of making people’s lives better with good nutrition, diligent care and health education. My biggest skill is medical communication, I can translate difficult medical information in simpler ways when delivering it to educate and raise awareness to patients or on the media. Ultimately, I want to make a positive impact in people’s lives through digital health and technology.

    2. How did you get involved with digital health?

      I believe in digital health technology because it’s time efficient and helps patients save money on healthcare expenses through online education. My interest developed further while working on the Dr. OZ show and in areas of Aerospace Medicine. As a medical researcher on the Dr. Oz Television Show, I realized that digital health can help people efficiently in several ways, this is one of the reasons for which I wanted to be an ambassador for Digital Health Today. I’m also involved with the Diabetes Technology Society and recently presented our research at their international conference. The topic of our research was aligned with using something as basic as social media for health education to positively influence healthcare in our community.

    3. Tell us about where you come from and some of the health and technology innovation that’s happening there.

      I completed my undergraduate education in Marketing, and my Master’s in Healthcare Administration. I find that my Marketing degree makes it slightly easier for me to reach my goals in connecting with people empathically and then helping them with medical information. I can speak more confidently of innovative medical discoveries in different specialties of internal medicine as I’m more familiar with those. In Baltimore, biomedical innovation has changed the lives of many people and plenty of these findings are from Johns Hopkins Medicine where there are new discoveries in health innovation in the department of Pulmonology and Critical Care Medicine, Diabetes and Metabolism, Sleep Medicine, Infectious Diseases, Nephrology and Psychiatry. The project I am working on with my PI, Dr. Galiatsatos is a new study initiative dedicated to create a positive change in the lives of the people of Baltimore, Maryland.

    4. What are some of your top interests and what should people contact you about?

      Professionally, I want to improve healthcare with nanotechnology in various specialties of medicine and preventive care. I also want to digitally influence intake of good nutrition to help prevent common diseases, research innovative ways to improve distance travel for people living with chronic diseases, especially for those with Diabetes, Hypertension and Asthma. As far as my personal interests, I like traveling, socializing and exercising. I collect little gadgets for home that make life easier. I enjoy trying exotic foods and in my free time, I like cooking.

    5. What should people contact you about.

      Anyone can contact me, if you’re a professional who is working on something great in healthcare, I’ll be interested to know more about what you do. If you’re a client or a patient, contact me to know more information about our organization and how we can help you. If you’re a final year medical student and want to get involved I’m happy to help.
