The Data PulseNov 17, 2020

Season 1 Wrap-up

Season 1 Wrap-up

Thank you for joining for Season 1 of the Data Pulse podcast. I hope you found the conversations over the past 6 months to be both enlightening and enjoyable.

With chaos dominating the world this year, the podcast for me has been a grounding force, tapping into the power that lies in using data science to effectively tackle some of the grandest challenges in biomedicine. I have thoroughly enjoyed diving into the minds of peers and mentors who I deeply admire, building a resource for a shared vocabulary—through both the conversations and the podcast glossary, and growing a community of folks passionate about improving medicine through the lens of data.

If you have a moment, check out the podcast website ( to provide feedback on Season 1—I’d like to make it as relevant and useful for *you*! The link will also include an application to join the Data Pulse team as publicity head, audio lead, or script lead. Definitely apply if you are interested! Finally, if you enjoyed this podcast, I’d deeply appreciate a rating on whichever platform you listen. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for being a part of the Data Pulse community!
