Big Health expands executive team

Kelvin Kwong and Dr Jenna Carl join the digital medicine company

London-based digital health programmes developer Big Health has boosted its executive team with the appointments of Kelvin Kwong and Dr Jenna Carl.

Kwong has been appointed as vice president of product management, and joins the mental health specialist from fitness technology firm Jawbone, where he was director of product management.

Prior to this, Kwong was a project manager at Amazon and served as an investor at private equity firm Onex.

Peter Hames, co-founder and chief executive of Big Health, said: “Thanks to his deep knowledge of technology-enabled behavior change, Kelvin is uniquely well positioned to advance our evidence-based programs.

“As the digital medicine movement gathers momentum he will play a critical role in us helping millions back to good mental health.”

Meanwhile, Dr Carl joins Big Health as medical director, bringing nearly 10 years of experience in clinical research and treatment of mental health conditions in adults.

She has held research positions at Harvard Medical School, UCSF Medical Center, the VA Palo Alto Health Care System, and Boston University.

Hames added: “Dr Carl's background in developing evidence-based cognitive and behavioural therapies makes her a phenomenal asset to the Big Health team.

“Big Health recognises that cognitive behavioural technologies, like Sleepio, make overcoming insomnia accessible to anyone. The appointments of Kelvin Kwong and Dr Carl will help Big Health stay at the forefront of this digital medicine revolution.”
