Meet our interns! Nanodropper began as a student project at the University of Washington, so the cofounding team knows first-hand how innovative and impactful student ideas can be. The team has made it a priority to provide opportunities for students from a variety of stages in their educational journeys, and add fresh perspectives and creativity to the product and company. The Nanodropper team is thrilled to be working with some incredible students, from an MBA student to a rising high school freshman!
The hallmark of any great piece of investigative journalism is, like any good marketing campaign, simply a call to action. For investigative reporter Marshall Allen, he’s made a career out of creating actionable news stories centered around the issue of medication waste. He’s even written a book about how to fight back against the healthcare system. His work highlighting medication waste directly inspired the creation of Nanodropper.

For the women of Nanodropper, the company’s mission to provide better access to vision-saving medications is personal. Co-founders Allisa Song, Dr. Jennifer Steger, and Mackenzie Andrews have each experienced problems related to their eye health.

Our hope is these stories will inspire you to go get your annual eye exam, and prioritize your overall health, which includes your eye health!
