Joshua Bress

I am a pediatrician whose primary focus is the care of neonates. I graduated from medical school at Vanderbilt University in 2007 and completed my pediatric residency at the University of California San Francisco. Following my residency, I worked for Global Strategies in the city of Goma, Congo working on projects related to pediatric health, neonatal care, pediatric HIV and the prevention of vertical HIV transmission.

My primary interest in Global Health is in improving the quality of care. I see our post-rape medication project in the eastern Congo as an effort to raise to the highest standard possible the care available to women.

Hello Virtual Team Members,
It looks like the MOLE(S) concept has moved to the next phase. This is my first trip down the river, and so I am hoping that we can collaborate in a big way on this concept. I had some communication with John Rogers the developer of the Bio-Sensor and he thinks that MOLE(s) would be possible, with some additional technology development. Technically the concept will work. However a business plan, marketing and many other elements are outside my area of knowledge. And so I would like to get as much input and support from the team as possible.
Meena-Has demonstrated a lot of communication and organization skills throughout the inspiration and concept phase and so it would be great to continue to have that leadership with this phase.
Aadhithya- Has great animation video and storytelling skills that would be a great asset in telling the story. I can do some 3D modeling and animation if you need story elements along the way.
Lee- Developed -The Beacon concept an SMS based community alert and messaging system; we can use this as a backend hub for messages if you are willing to merge the concept and develop it a bit more to make them link.
Chris S – Posted the COSPAS-SARSAT distress beacon which could work as the network for the system between this and the Beacon we would have a network and hub.
Joshua- Is in the medical field with experience in Africa, you are an endless resource that can add an array of expertise across the board.
So please feel free contribute at will.
Thanks a lot
