Health Tech: Baha Zeidan Of Azalea Health On How Their Technology Can Make An Important Impact On Our Overall Wellness
In recent years, Big Tech has gotten a bad rep. But of course, many tech companies are doing important work making monumental positive changes to society, health, and the environment. To highlight these, we started a new interview series about “Technology Making An Important Positive Social Impact.” We are interviewing leaders of tech companies who are creating or have created a tech product that is helping to make a positive change in people’s lives or the environment.
Baha Zeidan’s unmatched commitment to improving healthcare experiences and outcomes for both providers and patients drives the corporate vision, strategic direction and partner relationships at Azalea Health. Zeidan is a Valdosta State University graduate and received the GOLD Alumni Award.
Thank you so much for joining us in this interview series. Before we dive in, our readers would love to learn a bit more about you. Can you tell us a bit about your childhood backstory and how you grew up?
I grew up in a tough part of the world — in the Middle East. I am Palestinian. I grew up in, and lived in a a university campus ran by the United Nations and was raised by two well-educated parents. My mother was an executive working for the UN for 40 years, and my dad was a stay-at-home dad in the Middle East. I was raised on the value of open-mindedness; we’re all equals as human beings and education.
