While some arrive, others leave. Today, the case of Anil Sethi, which Apple arrived last year when its startup medical records, Gliimpse, was bought by Ma since then, he served as director of the health area in Cupertino.
In practice, Sethi had not been at Apple for a few months, since taking a leave of absence to care for her sister, Tania, stricken with cancer. Unfortunately, she passed away last September, and the executive decided to return; instead, he will dedicate himself to a sisterly promise to improve the treatment of cancer patients a promise that is already taking shape at the new startup Ciitizen, which will develop tools to ?deep? obtain patient data.
Sethi, incidentally, said in a statement that he continues to admire the dedication of his colleagues at Apple for a world in which medical monitoring becomes easier with the help of electronic devices, adding that he expects them to be «halfway through» at some point in the future. Good luck to him!
