Brad Kittredge worked with Haas classmate Elise Singer and two students in the School of Information to build a Web-based marketplace to connect patients with doctors who are able to diagnose complex conditions. Their Haas entrepreneurship classes and workshops, the Business Plan and Global Social Venture competitions, and the resources of the Lester Center were essential to their progress.

"Haas made me a better entrepreneur. It encouraged me to take chances and to understand that it is okay to fail. The dual MBA/MPH degree gave me the broad understanding I need to succeed in my new choice of a career in the healthcare IT sector."

"Leading Through Innovation means not being afraid to question assumptions — your own or someone else's. Part of leadership is knowing that you can't do it all on your own. You need to be able to set a vision and organize a team to achieve it."

"The diversity of the students at Haas is well-matched by the diversity of the faculty. All students seem to find one or two professors who really resonate with them."

"It's an honor to have been one of the six students selected as Brian Maxwell Fellows, named in memory of the Haas alumnus who was one of the founders of PowerBar. We created a community of people with a passion to use business as a vehicle for positive change in society. I was inspired by all of the other Fellows."
