Gates Foundation snaps up top Apple Health researcher to run a new digital health group

Publication date: Aug 09, 2019

Apple’s Dr. Andrew Trister is headed to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for a first-of-its-kind role to invest in digital health ventures that aim to have a global impact. Trister, who joins the foundation this week, was among the first employees to get recruited to Apple’s health team, alongside the renowned medical researcher Stephen Friend. But the health group has lost some significant talent in recent years: Anthem hired Apple’s Warris Bokhari as a vice president of digital care delivery last month; Robin Goldstein, who worked in health special projects, left for self-driving start-up Zoox last fall; Anil Sethi left Apple to start his next health-tech company in 2018; and Stephen Friend left Apple late in 2017 to become an independent entrepreneur. In his new role as a deputy director of digital health innovation at the Gates Foundation, Trister said he’s looking to work with entrepreneurs in the digital health world that are thinking of taking their technologies from the U. S. to the developing world, where studies are increasingly finding that people have access to smartphones.
