Innovation as a solution to health inequities. Featuring K’ept Health CEO Sheena Franklin.

After experiencing care that did not align with her expectations, Sheena Franklin has embarked on a mission to make dermatology more accessible and equitable. Her concerns were in part due to a structural issue seen in many medical disciplines: dermatology textbooks and training can contain bias and omit consideration of black and brown skin.  She set out to combine two nascent technologies, telehealth and machine learning (often called AI), and built a telehealth platform for dermatology: Telehealth + Dermatology = Teledermatology.  In today’s episode K’ept Health CEO Sheena Franklin discusses how innovation can take us closer to personalized and equitable healthcare with host Sharon LaSure-Roy.
