Anna Luīze Rezevska has previously won the SSE Riga Alumni Association Merit Reward two years in a row and has been acknowledged by the Prime Minister of Latvia for her academic achievements. Anna is also involved in a health tech startup that provides remote medical consultations to make healthcare more accessible in Latvia.
"Latvia is facing issues with people seeking help too late, when their health condition has deteriorated significantly, which is largely due to a lack of knowledge and information. Less than half of the population reports being in good health, and the mortality rates from both preventable and treatable causes are the second highest in the EU. I believe that with the right tools, we can significantly improve these figures," says Anna.
Anna is currently working on an app called Medistant, a medical assistant in your pocket that would offer personalized recommendations for preventive health measures, including reminders for check-ups, screenings, and vaccinations. Her dedication to healthcare issues and more specifically, prevention stems from a wish to empower and help people live better lives while making a challenging industry more efficient.
SSE Riga student Anna admits that receiving the Anders Wall Scholarship is a great honor and privilege. This opportunity will help her further her education and entrepreneurial advancements, including pursuing her work on the app.
SSE Riga was established in 1993 and the Stockholm School of Economics is one of the founders. Since 1996, the Anders Wall Foundation has annually awarded a scholarship to an outstanding and entrepreneurial student at SSE Riga.
