175 – Dr. Harsha Rajasimha, Founder of Jeeva Informatics, Lost A Child To Edwards Syndrome (AKA Trisomy 18) Shortly After Birth
Our guest this week is Dr. Harsha Rajasimha of Herndon, VA who is the father of three as well as CEO and Founder of Jeeva Informatics, a human-centric software as a service, also known as SaaS, enabling clinical research at scale.
Harsha and his wife, Ashwini, have been married for 16 years and are the proud parents of three daughters: Amulya (14), Mytri (7) and middle daughter Kahushi who, very sadly, died in 2012, shortly after birth due to Edwards Syndrome, also known as Trisomy 18, which is a rare congenital disorder.
Harsha is also founder of Indo-US Organization For Rare Diseases, a non-profit focused on accelerating therapies for rare diseases by building collaborative bridges between the USA and the Indian subcontinent for education, advocacy and research.
It’s an uplifting story about a father’s love for his family and how his heart has been shaped by
a daughter’s death. That’s all on this Special Fathers Network Dad to Dad Podcast.
