EDUARDO HARITON was born in Caracas, Venezuela, to parents of Jewish Eastern European descent. His grandfather, a former surgeon who traveled to remote areas of Venezuela to provide medical care to the poor, served as an enduring role model for Eduardo. Eduardo earned a BS in biology at the University of Florida and MD and MBA degrees at Harvard Medical School and Harvard Business School. While at Harvard, Eduardo was the co-founder and first president of the Harvard Latino Student Alliance, the first university-wide Latino student organization. Eduardo completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital and is now pursuing a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the University of California, San Francisco. He combines his clinical and business backgrounds to treat patients and think creatively about how to improve the care women receive, both in fertility and the broader women's health space. He has published extensively in high impact journals on a broad range of topics ranging from reproductive surgery to infertility treatments, and he also serves as an advisor to early stage healthcare companies.
