Created in Response to an Urgent Need

While enrolled at Stanford University, Vineet Singal took a temporary break from school to volunteer at St. Vincent’s Free Clinic in Galveston, Texas after Hurricane Ike had destroyed parts of the city and the need for affordable healthcare skyrocketed. 

Vineet realized that communicating with patients was a major barrier to providing care and that text messaging could help fill this gap.

After graduating from Stanford University and dropping out of his medical school acceptance, Vineet set out to solve this need by creating the company that became CareMessage- a 501(c)3 non-profit.

A Product Informed by Personal Experience

Cecilia Corral, Vineet's classmate at Stanford, joined soon after as CareMessage's VP of Product and co-founder.

Fueled by a personal connection to underserved communities and excited to put her engineering skills to use, Cecilia saw an enormous opportunity to build technology solutions responsibly.

Cecilia's personal experiences growing up in a low-income immigrant household, which relied on Medicaid and food stamps to make ends meet, gave her unique insights to design products and build technology for communities like the one she grew up in.
