“We are so excited to have Kim join our board,” says Rosenman founder and director Christine Winoto. “As a healthcare nonprofit, Rosenman sees immense opportunities in the future. We will benefit immeasurably from Kim’s guidance as we expand our programs, such as RISE and ADAPT, that support innovation and entrepreneurship to increase access to healthcare for all.”
