Health Tech - How to hack your own health with technology ?

"With just 2ml of your saliva, we would analyse your DNA to explore your genetic risks, and provide actionable recommendations to improve your lifestyle.

Your genetics can tell you a story about yourself. It dictates the way your body works, from your physical appearances like the color of your eyes and your height, to the way your body processes nutrients, like how fast your body metabolises caffeine and whether you are lactose intolerant." - Advanx Health -

About the Speaker
Ping is the co-founder and Product/Tech Lead at Advanx Health, and she manages the technical infrastructure and digital marketing within the company.

As a pharmacist, she discovered programming through Codecademy by chance. She then learnt programming from Next Academy’s Web Development Bootcamp in 2015, and from then onwards she began her programming career in Next Academy. In her 2.5 years with Next Academy, she built and maintained internal softwares used in operations, sales and marketing, which gave her the opportunity to improve her technical skills, and pick up on digital marketing and growth hacking as well.

She is part of the winning team of Health Hackathon Kuala Lumpur that was held earlier this year, which uses machine learning to predict antimicrobial resistance outbreaks based on antibiotics usage in hospitals.

With a background in pharmacy and healthcare, coupled with her love for technology, starting Advanx Health is the perfect avenue for her to utilise technology to improve the health and wellbeing of the community.
