“It’s 3:23 in the morning and I’m awake because my great-great grandchildren won’t let me sleep. My great-great grandchildren ask me in dreams, ‘What did you do while the planet was plundered?’” ‘What did you do when the earth was unraveling?”—Drew Dellinger

“My career started in engineering management at IBM, Bell Laboratories, ROLM, and Acuson. However, I soon became aware that we are living in a time of the convergence of multiple global crises. As a founder of Hcare Health, PBC. As the nation’s first Delaware Public Benefit Corporation in Healthcare, I saw the possibility of the healthcare community itself shifting. As a systems thinker, community resilience expert, and network entrepreneur, I was enthused to bring this skillset to Hcare for its own community and the communities it is going into. I see my ability as a ‘network weaver’ helping the people understand how the underlying technology can change reality. After years of a detached system that is literally burning out its members, healthcare is awakening, and solutions are emerging. I am excited to be a part of it, especially at the community level.
At Hcare, the core of my work is building compassion and collaboration to face the huge challenge ahead.
