A Career in Digital Health and Public Health: An Unconventional Path

If you’re looking for a job that’s meaningful, fulfilling, and allows you to make a real impact on the lives of people and society at large, you should read Tali Segev’s story of her unconventional path to a career at the intersection of digital health and public health.

MyndYou’s vice president of customer success’ story starts with a lot of questions. First, friends and family asked “What is public health?” Then, there were questions about her career options with a Master’s degree in public health.

For the first  question, she came up with a simple explanation that everyone could understand:

“Public Health studies trends, behaviors, and policies that can help improve the health of the entire community.” 

The second question was a little more difficult to answer.

“Should I continue on the path that brought me to public health in the first place, working on the ground with local communities? Or should I pursue public health policy, fulfilling my desire to make a big-picture impact? Or did I want to stay in the world of academia and epidemiology, where I was intrigued by some of the smartest people around me, asking hard questions and pursuing complex answers?” she asked. “As I examined each path, the thought of choosing just one felt impossible. There were parts of every single one that I knew I wasn’t ready to let go of, as well as parts of each one that I knew, weren’t entirely right for me.”

That’s when she met MyndYou founder and CEO, Ruth Poliakine Baruchi. We’ll let her tell the rest of her personal story, “An Unconventional Path to a Public Health Career in the Wake of COVID-19,” but we can’t resist sharing this final quote:

“I’m here to tell you that customer success in health tech is the best place for a forward-thinking, adventure-seeking, impact-driven public health advocate.”

Tyler Jackson, our newest customer success manager, agrees: “To say it is an exciting time to operate at the intersection of digital health and public health is an understatement,” he wrote on a recent LinkedIn post

Next up in the planned series, Tali will share a “digital health stakeholder map” from the customer success perspective, focusing on the “why” of each stakeholder and how customer success managers help these healthcare leaders achieve their goals.
