Transforming the economics of our healthcare system starts with the individual, shared Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes: “What’s fundamental to changing [health] outcomes is personal accountability.” Holmes shared her company’s approach to embracing failure constantly and their long-term vision of making people’s lives better around the world. She also encouraged students to find their passion: “Find what you love so deeply that if you were to get fired, you would do it again because it’s your vision and calling.”
