Improves human performance with the power of technology.
"If you show girls the power of technology then they can invent the future."
Inventing the future! Dr. Cori Lathan is a neuroscientist, biomedical engineer, and tech entrepreneur who uses technology to help people do things better. So she co-founded AnthroTronix, a tech innovation firm which made a robot to help kids with disabilities, a sensor glove to train surgeons, a virtual reality system to study astronauts in space, and a computer game to track your brain health.
Dr. Lathan’s statue shows her holding one of her inventions, "String", which is a prototype electroceutical to heal the body through electricity instead of chemicals. You can listen to great music AND receive stimulation through the cymba concha part of the ear.
She is a social advocate for STEM (Science, technology, engineering, mathematics) education, global health, and LGBTQ+ inclusion and is on several not-for-profit boards including the Foundation for a Smoke Free World, The KID Museum, and Engineering World Health.
