Giving Back, One Guest at a Time

In case you were wondering, our guests aren't paid to be a part of our podcasts. Each guest has his/her own reasons and motivations for taking the time to participate, and they take a big chunk of time out of their schedules to share meaningful insights and valuable experience. Contributing to our platform is often seen as a way of giving back to the health tech innovation community.

They don't have to do that, and we appreciate their taking time to contribute, participate and engage.

To recognize their generosity, and in the spirit of contributing to the global good, we make a small cash donation to a charity of their choice. Toward the end of each episode, we ask each guest to nominate a charity they support, and to share a little bit about what that charity does. Links to each charity are included in the show notes for each podcast.

The organizations below are some of those that have already received donations. Please feel free visit their websites, and, if you're so inclined, to support them with a donation of your own.

Thanks to our guests for contributing their knowledge and insights, and also thank you for supporting Digital Health Today!
