    What is your sense of purpose? How John Slattery, CEO of BioROSA Technologies is making the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum disorder (ASD) rapid and simple.

    “You can’t help but not want to do something once you’ve been exposed to this community”
    “I’m very much a fighter and survivor”
    “Covid exposed all the holes in the current medical system”
    “You have to have that introspective look and be able to listen to others”
    “Active listening without any doing is empty”
    “The future looks unbelievably bright not only for early detection but for early intervention”
