My Story with Kateřina Vacková
We are very honoured that the next My Story speaker will be Kateřina Vacková, current mentee of the Equilibrium programme 2020.
I am a doctor and entrepreneur based in Prague, Czech Republic. I successfully finished my studies at the First Faculty of Medicine and Harvard Medical School. Four years ago I founded a non-profit organization Loono with the mission to motivate people to think about their health in time after my personal experience with cancer.
With my team of med school students, young doctors and other professionals we run creative media campaigns and educational workshops in schools, companies, and cultural festivals in order to spread awareness about breast and testicular cancer as well as heart attack, stroke and other diseases. With more than 80,000 people educated, tens have already identified cancer and other diseases at an early stage.
I have won the Social Innovation Prize and was endorsed as a Young Leader in the 30 Under 30 list by Forbes Magazine. I get up at 6 am every day and exercise or practice yoga. I love surfing, coffee, and Vietnamese cuisine. You can usually meet me wearing a white shirt and red lipstick.
This event is open to public.
Refreshment is included.
