When did you first know what you wanted to be when you grew up? Some of us are still looking for the answer to that question.
Mohamed Elmahdy was a freshman in high school when the lightbulb went off.
After earning his Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, Mohamed could have worked for a hospital, a doctor's office, a lab or a drug company. But when he heard about the AT&T Foundry for Connected Health, he saw an opportunity to better serve the dreams of his 14-year-old self.
So what happened in 9th grade?
"I wasn't really interested in medicine or anything health-related until that point," Mohamed remembers. "I just remember how helpless I felt with what my family was going through. I decided I never wanted to feel that way again."
