About Dr. Gary Levin (from https://about.me/garylevin)
I am now in my 7th seventh decade on Planet Earth. I am now retired from a long career as an ophthalmologist. It was a privilege to restore sight to so many people. Since that time I have been involved with HIT, helping to start the Inland Empire Health Information Exchange, and am now engaged with telemedicine. My goal is to support thought leaders on innovation, technology and public policy, and to advance a vision of medicine, not as it is, but as it could be.
