Presenter: Doug Rachac

Former employee of a major heart device company, current med-device patient and advocate for other heart patients.

Doug Rachac spent 14 years working for Medtronic, where he worked in multiple areas, including Customer Service, Education, and Quality.  

In 2014, due to several episodes of syncope and documented non-sustained ventricular tachycardia, he received an implanted Medtronic defibrillator. He then left Medtronic in 2015 to recover, volunteer and to be the world’s best stay-at-home dad. He now advocates for device patients and consults with the medical device industry on patient engagement and patient-focused initiatives.
