    Hello there! My name is Karim Bayanzay, and I'm excited to share my story with you. I'm an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Hospital Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, where I'm dedicated to providing exceptional patient care. I practice internal medicine at UCSF Parnassus, Mt Zion, and St. Mary's Medical Center, where I mentor residents and medical students.

    In addition to patient care, I'm passionate about incorporating the latest medical technology and data into healthcare. I've contributed to several healthcare-related AI projects and played a leadership role in the design and implementation of electronic health records, which improved physician workflows.

    I'm particularly proud of my participation in the national iCODE project, a consortium led by the Diabetes Technology Society (DTS) which aims to integrate continuous glucose monitoring data into electronic health records of people with diabetes. As a steering committee member, I contribute to the development of technical specifications and workflows to facilitate data integration efforts and improve diabetes management and outcomes.

    Beyond my academic pursuits, I'm also a co-founder of NeuroSpinal Innovations, where I work with a dedicated team to revolutionize pain management using cutting-edge wave therapy. To date, we've provided over 1.5 million treatments, which is a testament to our commitment to making a real difference.

    I'm also involved in a new startup that seeks to enhance the radiological diagnosis of neck pain. As a result of my leadership role, we successfully secured FDA, Health Canada and CE approvals for our medical device, which is a significant milestone for our team.

    As a devout Muslim, I'm committed to giving back to my community and home country of Afghanistan. I've had the honor of working on several projects to provide life-saving care to Afghans with complex medical conditions. Additionally, I'm proud to serve as a board member for Averroes High School, a non-profit institution committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for Muslim teenagers to attend school.
