Shailin Thomas

What are you currently working on?
Broadly, I’m helping to figure out more efficient, effective ways to structure state health care programs.  But in a more immediate sense, I’m cramming as much physiology knowledge into my brain as physiologically possible as I pursue my medical degree at the NYU School of Medicine and my law degree at Harvard Law School.

What do you want to solve? How? Why?
I want to get everyone in the US the health care they need without driving them into bankruptcy.

What would you do if you had absolute power?
Hopefully procrastinate less.

What are you listening to?
Probably predictable, but The Week in Health Law with Frank Pasquale and Nicolas Terry is my jam.

What is your tagline for 2018?
This is the year I finally come up with a good tagline…...wait...
