Author Profile: 

Anna Foat loves the power of possibility of changing the status quo in healthcare to drive better patient outcomes. She’s worked at a start-up, grown with one of the most famous Canadian scale-ups (and subsequent crashes), and now works for a major insurer to accelerate digital transformation efforts. As a caregiver for both her husband and mother in law on complicated chronic health issues, her advocacy opened an opportunity to be part of the newly formed Western Ontario Health Team in London Ontario as a patient advisor. She earned a BA in English Literature from the University of Waterloo and now teaches Design Thinking at Western.
