In this episode, host Candice Coghlan sat down with Shilpa Raju, an epidemiologist who finished her degree while battling cancer. She survived the cancer, however unfortunately the side effects from her treatment caused severe lung damage, resulting in her need for a double lung transplant. Shilpa spoke about being a young person battling illness and trying to keep a sense of normalcy and positivity through her day to day. Later, we were joined by Dr. Mamatha Bhat, a staff hepatologist and clinician scientist at UHN's Ajmera Transplant Program and the University of Toronto's Division of Gastroenterology. She speaks to us about machine learning and AI implications for health care and how it is going to revolutionize the world of transplants and beyond.
