This week, Lucia speaks with Dr. Thomas Tsang, who is the CEO and co-founder of Valera Health, a physician, and a former congressional staffer in the Obama Administration who helped write and execute the Affordable Care Act.
Thomas shares how he pursued a career in healthcare despite growing up not being able to afford healthcare. He also shares how his career at Charles B. Wang, the Chinatown community medical center in New York provided him with an opportunity to help write and execute Affordable Care Act.
In the interview, Thomas also opens up about his own experience with mental health and how it prompted him to create a data-driven mental health startup called Velera Health.
