WGN | HOW DOES IT FEEL TO HAVE MACULAR DEGENERATION?

The doctor patient relationship has always been a hit or miss for many in the healthcare world, because it’s tough to describe a feeling or symptom as a patient and a care giver. Carrie Shaw‘s mother has inspired her to change that for the better. Scott talked with Carrie about how her inspirational care taking experience has lead her to use virtual reality to start Embodied Labs and answer the most difficult healthcare questions with a first-person perspective. Carrie will also bring her young team to the Technori stage this month with the theme being wearable tech.
