The Cambia Grove helps drive the development of new solutions for health care. The industry-specific hub has been convening the health care community for the past two years, providing a point of connection for Cascadia’s innovators and catalyzing action.
As a reflection of the Cambia Grove’s growing role, reputation and visibility in our community, Cambia Grove’s Co-founder and Executive Director, Nicole Bell, was recently selected to serve as one of five judges nationally at the Alexa Diabetes Challenge—an international competition looking for comprehensive solutions that use Alexa’s voice technology to improve the experience of those who have been newly diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.
“I’m excited to be a judge because of what this technology represents for our industry,” said Bell. “This concept is about engaging people where they’re at, using a technology with a very low barrier to entry to give them a way to manage their care on their own terms and in their own homes.”
Nicole recently sat down with the Cambia Grove’s Community Executive, David Shepard, for a brief conversation about what the honor of being selected as a judge means to her, the Cambia Grove and Cambia. You can listen to the pop-up podcast here (eight minutes in length).
