The Most Connected Human on Earth
Health and wellness pioneer, healthcare technology leader and entrepreneur, Christopher Dancy is frequently referred to as “the world’s most connected human.” Since the 1990s, when he was responsible for platform and technical development for the internet startup of WebMD, he has helped launch a number of successful startup companies in the technology and healthcare industries while serving in digital product development, senior management and leadership roles.
He has been featured on the cover of Businessweek and as“patient zero in the digital health revolution” for the Showtime documentary series Dark Net, and has been interviewed by the Wall Street Journal, NPR, the BBC, Fox News and Wired. As a personal health visionary and innovator, utilizing up to 700 sensors, self-diagnostic devices, applications and services to track, analyze and optimize personal health management – from caloric intake to spiritual well-being, he is able to demonstrate the connections of otherwise invisible data and forecast a transformation that will soon take place in consumer health and nutrition, healthcare business and beyond.
His credits include “author” with the release of a manifesto and autobiography via St. Martin’s Press entitled “Don’t Unplug – How Technology Saved My Life and Can Save Yours Too.”
