Today's storyteller is Dr Harriet Teare! I got connected with Harriet because she's in the newest cohort of Homeward Bound - HB6 - and I put an all call on Twitter to invite them to come be on the podcast! So Harriet is the first of several episodes featuring HB6ers, and I feel a bit like a sophomore in high school now with the new class coming in after me. So that's how Harriet and I got connected, but she's here today to talk about her work in the healthcare space working on managing health, not disease, and focusing on ways new and upcoming technologies can make healthcare more accessible for all. It's really interesting and I learned a lot! Then we also go on tangents about our health habits and fitness interests, like the endurance activities we both do. I personally have been struggling with lack of motivation during this pandemic because my normal source of motivation is gone, and Harriet explains how she found unique ways to stay motivated during this unusual time. As usual the episode title doesn't begin to cover everything we talk about in this episode so enjoy!
