ST Medical Monday: A Health-Meets-Technology Chat with Scott Phillips, a Tulsa-Based Entrepreneur
On this edition of StudioTulsa Medical Monday, we speak with Scott Phillips, a Tulsa-based entrepreneur and innovator -- and avid "hacker" -- who was recognized as a "Champion of Change" in a 2013 ceremony at The White House. Phillips is also the founder of a nonprofit called Civic Ninjas, an outfit that describes itself thus (at its website): "We are technologists, developers, designers, thinkers, entrepreneurs, tinkerers, and makers -- all ordinary folks just doing our part. We are part community, part organization, part business...but we are mostly a group of like-minded folks working to make a difference. We celebrate what works, and work to fix what doesn't, driven by an underlying belief that community makes the world possible." Phillips speaks with us about a health-related app that his organization is now working on; it's an "open" application that anyone can use to determine the overall health of any given neighborhood in the US.
