In 2010, while volunteering in post-earthquake Haiti, Dr. Sonny Kohli experienced first-hand the perils of inadequate health care faced by Earth’s most marginalized peoples. As a practicing Physician in Internal Medicine and Critical Care and is faculty at McMaster University, he believes that the right people, forming the right alliances can move mountains. 1+1=11 as his Father once said.
Intrigued by space-age and digital solutions to the world’s health problems, Sonny co-founded Cloud DX to create a fully autonomous ‘digital doctor’ called Vitaliti. Dr. Kohli believes that exponential technologies will transform health care, dramatically reducing costs and increasing access and care quality to the world’s marginalized populations. Digital healthcare, if cost effective and scaled properly, has the potential to impact a billion lives.
In 2008/09, Sonny was a top 40 Astronaut Candidate in the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) recruitment campaign. He is also an alumnus of the International Space University, a trained flight surgeon with the Canadian Forces, and was awarded a CSA scholarship to Johnson Space Center & Wyle Labs. While studying at ISU, he helped deploy the Image Reversal In Space (IRIS) experiment on the International Space Station.
