Podcast #3: The Digital Therapeutics Challenge: How do we work it?

Commentary
Maeve Lyons

In this podcast, Megan talks about her childhood and growing up years in Milwaukee that led her to becoming a pharmacist, and she just knew that this wasn't her gig from the get go. After a stint with Voluntis in France that she very much enjoyed, Megan branched off to start the DTA to help do the right thing as we venture into a new category of medicines. She feels strongly about everybody in the industry coming together towards achieving this greater goal and educating one another on the digital therapeutics opportunity. When Megan walked into the room for this recording, the HealthXL gang were pretty surprised as she is so young (guess we're getting old!) for someone who has taken these big, bold steps.
