Celebrating 1k & Christmas Drinks... Cause we all deserve it 🤶 🍸
So I am “taking time off”, plus getting some first-hand patient experience, cause that’s just how dedicated I am to this work. Jokes, apparently I’m human.
In case you missed it…
Back on Nov 5th, we surpassed 1000 healthtech loving legends (actually 1094 right now) 😭 ❤️ I’ve already been annoying on socials, but in case you missed it, you can find the pretty chart and sappy rant here
My heart is so flipping full and I. Appreciate. Every. Single. One. Of. You.
Of course, there is more to come. But I would LOVE to hear from you
Got suggestions? Want to be involved? Or just say hey?

If you know someone else who might like healthtech, memes and cool people… I’d super appreciate it if you shared the love and flicked it their way
Because of this milestone… And surviving this year… And the holiday season… We all definitely deserve to celebrate 🎉

Because I don’t want to leave you high and dry, here are a few cool things worth looking at:
🔈 A LOT TO SAY PODCAST Ep 27: CO-DESIGN with Leah Heiss - This pod by Melbourne’s Gary Williams ft. Leah Heiss is especially smashing. An award-winning designer and researcher working at the intersection of design, health, and technology - Leah focusses on how design can scaffold major shifts in healthcare towards digitisation and personalisation of care, whilst also working on insane projects combining research, design and devices like jewellery to administer insulin through the skin for diabetics; biosignal sensing emergency jewellery; and swallowable devices to detect disease.
This ep covers everything from careers in academia, to her take on emerging trends, career pathways, design process & outcomes, charting complex healthcare journeys & developing ecosystems of care
Healthcare’s middle children: Potential disruptors flying under the radar by Rock Health - Consumerisation and digitisation of healthcare are happening at a rapid pace (whether you like it or not). And while there’s a lot of focus on the Big tech giants, and the shiny new startups… there’s another group worth noting.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, in some shape or form… every company is and will become a health company. And these “Middle Children”, the retail players, tech orchestrators and boss brands are somewhat perfectly poised to be big movers in health. With many already making a good ruckus. Worth a read.
Fitt Insider Issue No. 156: The Gen Z Playbook - Gen Z (or Zoomers) now make up the largest generation in the US. And like every generation, they like to do things differently (and for some it can be baffling). This piece explores the current state of play of Gen Zs perspective, insights and influence on health
Thats all folks!
As always, I love hearing from you so hit reply or reach out
But I just won’t reply this week
