As a data analytics professional at LinkedIn, I’m passionate about using data to change people’s lives. And as a former neurosurgeon, I’m passionate about saving lives too. Today I get to talk a little bit about both.
Earlier this week we commemorated World Health Day, a day dedicated to raising global awareness of health issues and promoting healthy behaviors. To celebrate, I’d like to recognize medical professionals everywhere who are tasked with the job of keeping us healthy. I know firsthand how most healthcare professionals don’t often work a typical “9-to-5” day. Viruses don’t take weekends off, which is why the job of being a doctor or nurse demands a level of dedication and training that is unique in the professional domain.
