Not Impossible Now's editor met high school student Matthew O'Connell at the Intel science fair in downtown Los Angeles.
O'Connell's innovation is software that displays, translates and speaks clear instructions for both prescribers and patients to reduce errors in pharmacotherapy, especially among the less literate, the vision impaired, and those for whom language is otherwise a barrier.
O'Connell has taken a broken system, applied a next-gen eye to solving it and is taking some (confident) steps to ensure less people are made sick by the things that should be helping them.
Our hats off to you, good Sir!
(Editor's note: Doesn't he remind you a little of a member of the Franco family? Not to undermine his ISEF achievement, but we're thinking of James Franco's younger brother Dave... right? Or, are we nuts? Go ahead, tell us, we can take it)
