Dr. Kalyan (Kal) Kalwa, SoPE Boston Executive Committee, is a physician and pharmacist from India who came to the United States with a dream to practice medicine. However, soon after, he realized his true passion for information technology. After completing some IT courses, he worked as a quality analyst for over a decade. During this time, he realized that he wanted to make a much bigger impact in health care. Armed with a unique combination of skill sets from both medicine and the technology world, he co-founded Health innovators in 2012. His idea was to involve doctors in innovation. Starting small, the organization has grown to over 20000 members today. Kal’s entrepreneurial vision not only drives Health Innovators, but spans to helping others with the same passion. His long term goal is to start a digital health fund. Kal believes in empowering others to achieve their goals. This trait extends beyond work, at the Toastmasters. Kal first started going to Toastmasters to improve his own public speaking skills; but eventually has served as the Cambridge area governor, helping others who are in the same shoes that he was in some years ago.
