Data Science in Healthcare Event: Separating fact from fiction

Last year, Ashley Holmes shared her Data Scientist jobsearch in a LinkedIN post that went mini-viral. 467 likes and 79 comments later, she had hundreds of recruiters DMing her with job listings.

Trained and self-identifying as a Data Scientist, she had most recently worked as a Data Engineer at athenahealth and before that conducted research in the healthcare systems science and engineering space. After her LinkedIN post, companies and recruiters far and wide reached out to her with Healthcare Data Scientist roles. What became clear fairly quickly was that most of these companies didn’t actually understand what data science is, and due to that misunderstanding, lacked vision for how it can contribute to achieving their missions. This lack of vision leads to an unfulfilling work environment and wasted resources.

Ashley is going to join me for an online event to talk about why Data Science in Healthcare is the hot trend that needs some recalibration
