About the founder
Kevin Hrusovsky is an acclaimed healthcare visionary and serial biotech entrepreneur, who founded Powering Precision Health, the nation’s first forum for advancing the deep science that powers precision health. He also founded Revolutionaries for Global Health in 2008.
Hrusovsky began on a mission 15 years ago to transform medicine from reactive ‘sick care’ to proactive, preventative, and personalized healthcare. Today, he relies on peer reviewed science and innovation to bring quantifiable evidence to the forefront and has catalyzed a science-based precision health movement across the globe. In 2016, he founded and launched the Powering Precision Health summit to address the continuum from health to disease at the molecular structure level in the human body. With his summit, Hrusovsky is leading the charge to establish a new paradigm for measuring life’s variables or biomarkers at a personal level by fostering collaboration among the world’s foremost doctors, researchers, scientists, innovators, patients, and policymakers. He identifies and focuses on three pillars of precision health: disease prevention, early detection, and precision treatments, with an overall vision to create a culture of health and wellness in our country where disease prevention guides our healthcare system and everyday living.
Hrusovsky is a recognized biotech and healthcare expert and analyst, offering the big picture view on achieving industry-wide transformation to true precision medicine. He has received many awards and accolades, including being dubbed as “as the unsung leader in the life sciences industry” with his 2017 BBJ Innovation All-Star recognition by the Boston Business Journal.
