Aneesh Chopra Story

Aneesh Chopra

formerly White House Office on Science and Technology Policy

Aneesh Chopra is the former Chief Technology Officer for the White House. Text4baby is the first free mobile health service to be taken to scale in the United States. We know that mobile phones hold tremendous potential to inform and empower individuals. Text4baby represents an extraordinary opportunity to expand the way we use our phones, to demonstrate the potential of mobile health technology, and make a real difference for moms and babies across the country.

As a parent of two young children, I can tell you that my family would have signed up for text4baby in an instant. My wife and I wanted to learn as much as possible about pregnancy and the first year of our baby’s life. I’m thrilled that this service provides a convenient way for moms all over the country to learn this information. This is particularly important for moms who may not already have access to health information or care.
