“Anita’s experience as a clinician and researcher lends a critical viewpoint to our device development work,” Aidan Petrie, Ximedica’s co-founder and chief innovation officer, said. “Throughout the design process, from understanding clinical needs to final validation and regulatory submissions—and in some cases, managing clinical trials—having Anita on our staff will provide an invaluable resource to our clients.”
Kestin received her medical training at Brown University in Providence, R.I., and completed a fellowship in hematology/oncology at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. She also has a master’s degree in public health (with a focus on patient safety and quality) from Brown University. Kestin most recently was an attending physician in hematology/oncology at Rhode Island Hospital and she also was a patient safety fellow.
“Because I have seen the human cost of medical errors in patient safety, I am pleased that patient safety is now in the spotlight and I am enthusiastic about helping to create better and safer ways to deliver medical care,” Kestin said.
