Julia Tsang T’17

Julia is a second-year student at Tuck who serves as a Healthcare Initiative fellow and co-chair for both the Design Club and Business & Society Conference. She studied economics and political science at Northwestern, where she also worked on design thinking projects exploring the healthcare experience. Prior to Tuck, Julia worked at Nielsen helping CPG clients understand consumer behavior through pricing and marketing analytics. She decided to go back to school to pursue her interests in consumer behavior, human-centered design, and healthcare to improve the healthcare delivery experience. In the summer before Tuck, she interned with a remote patient monitoring startup in NYC. During her first year at Tuck, Julia worked on a first year project examining financially feasible elder care solutions for a hospital on a Navajo reservation in Arizona. She also engaged with a healthcare technology startup working to understand the role of real-time patient experience data. Julia interned with Boston Children’s Hospital on the Telehealth team, part of the Innovation and Digital Health Accelerator group. She supported a pilot launch of an enterprise-wide direct-to-patient virtual visits platform and worked on an implementation playbook to roll out the program at scale. She is excited about technology’s ability to unlock and create value in healthcare delivery and is looking forward to pursuing opportunities to drive meaningful change for patients and providers.
