Steven Keating

Engineer

Steven Keating, Ph.D., passed away July 19, 2019, at the age of 31. He was an engineer and an unflagging champion of greater transparency in healthcare. After learning that he had a brain tumor, Steven applied his passions for data and transparency to his treatment. He pushed for more sharing between doctors and patients, posted his own brain scans for others to investigate, and raised awareness nationwide of the healing power of openness.
