“Why aren’t our failures in science embraced the same way as our successes?”
Sophie Okolo, MPH, is the founder and chief editor of the website Global Health Aging, which covers research and news about healthy ageing. She is a science writer and researcher with a background in aging, bioinformatics, and health technology. Her insights and bylines have appeared in Forbes, MarketWatch, PBS Next Avenue, Philips, and IEEE Potentials, among others.
Sophie is interested in how technology can support healthy aging, and how it can help to fight the loneliness that many older adults experience. She communicates about these topics through podcasts, magazines, social media, etc. She also collaborates with colleagues working in areas such as assistive robotics.
While curating @sfprocur, Sophie will talk about embracing failure, finding resilience, and starting over in science.
