About Close Concerns

Close Concerns is a healthcare information firm focused on diabetes, obesity, digital health, and public health. We are dedicated to improving patient outcomes by educating physicians and other healthcare providers, scientists, business leaders, policymakers, advocates, and patients about the most important news and research in the field. Reaching academic institutions, nonprofit organizations, drug and medical device manufacturers, and government bodies, Close Concerns is widely respected in the healthcare community. With an advisory board of leading endocrinologists, cardiologists, primary care physicians, nurses, and community health workers, we study new research, interview clinicians, scientists, and thought leaders around the world, and publish our findings in online reports and blogs. Our firm is led by Kelly Close (Amherst ’90, Harvard Business School ’95) and located in the vibrant Lower Haight district of San Francisco. In addition to this two-year associate program, we also have open positons for college grads at our sister organizations, The diaTribe Foundation and dQ&A, a market research firm. Contact Helen Gao at helen.gao@closeconcerns.com if you are also interested in applying at one of these. Over three dozen associates have graduated from our three programs and gone on to leading medical schools and other graduate programs. We welcome college seniors to apply to become part of a global network of young healthcare leaders.
