Thomas Goetz

American author and health care entrepreneur. Goetz holds a B.A. degree from Bates College, a master's degree in public health from the University of California, Berkeley, and a master's degree in American literature from the University of Virginia. At Wired magazine, where he was a longtime executive editor, he wrote articles about genomics, medical technology, and behavior change that have been widely anthologized; his popular TED talk about redesigning medical data led up to his co-founding of Iodine, "a health technology company with the mission of turning medical research data into clear and actionable tools for ordinary people to make better decisions about their health."
