When is comes to health engagement, Dr. Bobinet has 5 words of advice: be caring, authentic, and useful. As the CEO-founder of engagedIN, a behavior design firm sprouted out of Stanford, Kyra is devoting her life to helping people crack the code of how, what, and especially, WHY we engage in things. Kyra has founded several healthcare start-ups, spanning behavior health, population health, and mobile health. She has designed behavior change programs, big data algorithms, billion dollar products, mobile health apps, and evidence-based studies in mind-body and metabolic medicine. All of her designs, whether for at-risk teens or seniors, are rooted in the belief that true caring is our greatest salve. Dr. Bobinet currently co-teaches courses at Stanford School of Medicine on patient engagement and empowerment, and health design with Dr. Larry Chu, founder of MedicineX. She also studies in Dr. BJ Fogg’s Persuasive Tech Lab at Stanford. Dr. Bobinet received her Masters in Public Health at Harvard University, specializing in Healthcare Management, Technology-enabled Behavior Change, and Population Health Management. She received her medical degree from the UCSF School of Medicine. When she’s not geeking out on neuroscience literature, you can find her engaged in her kids, minimalist eco design, and surfing.
