Health Tech Influence With 33 Charts’ Dr. Bryan Vartabedian

Zac Feb 05

Are you interested in health technology and innovation?

I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Bryan Vartabedian, a pediatrician at Baylor College of Medicine / Texas Children’s Hospital and one of health care’s influential voices on technology & how it affects medicine with his blog 33charts.com.

Learn how he gets out of his comfort zone and is pushing boundaries through a combination of persistence and finding role models.

Pediatricians everywhere can build courage, momentum, and get their voice heard with Bryan’s simple, yet effective advice.

So sit back, relax and become inspired!


“I’ve had so many doctors right here at Baylor who have come up to me and said, how did you get permission to start your blog? And I say, I didn’t get permission, I just did it!”

“I think humans have a greater role in shaping the way technology goes, and physicians have to, going forward, play a bigger role in how their profession evolves… I first became empowered when I realized that I had the capacity to sort of reach the world with my voice.”
