Inspirations : Elizabeth Holmes , vibrant youngster who transformed Healthcare.


         Elizabeth Holmes (Theranos Chairman, CEO and Founder) founded Theranos in 2003 with the mission to make actionable health information accessible to people everywhere at the time it matters, enabling early detection and intervention of disease, and empowering individuals with information to live the lives they want to live.  
       Elizabeth left Stanford University’s School of Engineering to build Theranos around her patents and belief that access to health information is a basic human right. For the last decade, she has led the company from concept to reality, enabling a new paradigm of consumer health and prevention.
        Theranos breakthrough advancements have made it possible to quickly process the full range of laboratory tests from a few drops of blood – instead of numerous tubes – and at unprecedented low costs, and are now directly accessible to people and their physicians through Theranos Wellness Centers opening nationwide.
Elizabeth led the passing of the first law in our nation’s history to give individuals the explicit right to direct access laboratory testing. The law was based on a draft she wrote, enfranchising 7 million Arizonan’s, facilitating engagement with and protection of physicians, and creating a model for other states across the country to shift toward preventative care, individual empowerment and price transparency.
Elizabeth was asked by the White House to serve as a United States Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship. She is the youngest person to be awarded the Horatio Alger Award, and was named one of the TIME 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2015. She has an honorary doctorate from Pepperdine University.
