Daisy Ozim’s personal and professional experience in public policy, health, technology and social activism have led her to use blockchain to impact those in need. She is the founder of Resilient Wellness, a nonprofit organisation that uses a public health blockchain to promote system and policy change as well as provides innovative solutions to support the transformation of communities and systems impacted by intergenerational trauma. The initiative also provides affordable holistic health services and health education geared towards these communities.
“I came into blockchain after spending years in the public policy and social enterprise space,” she told Authority Magazine. “I saw blockchain as a way to finance critical projects that aren’t getting the funding support they need due to various restrictions. Blockchain is a powerful tool for creating trustless systems that eliminate the need for bureaucracy and streamline access to resources to address pressing social issues.”
She also runs the Blockchain for Social Justice collective, an initiative that supports the development of blockchain projects that uplift marginalised individuals and communities and facilitate democracy within unfair institutions. The platform provides education and access to blockchain technology and cryptocurrency to underserved populations. The organisation’s conference series brings together key stakeholders, such as community organisers, politicians and blockchain entrepreneurs, to collectively re-envision the way blockchain projects are designed and implemented.
Daisy is a state council member at IGNITE National and a public health commissioner with Alameda County in the San Francisco Bay Area. She is also a research fellow at the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.
Prior to getting involved in blockchain, she was a director at Transitional Age Youth San Francisco.Tags: blockchain, HealthTech, Women in Tech
