"Nuclear Fusion"

Born in Arkansas, at an early age Taylor took an interest in science. When he was 10 years old this interest turned nuclear, and at age 14 Taylor became the youngest person in history to produce nuclear fusion. He spent his high school career continuing fusion research along with developing a series of novel nuclear technologies impacting a range of fields from medicine to security.

Along with the commercialization of these innovations, Taylor has recently begun work on a novel class of compact, modular power reactor that can be rapidly brought to market for both distributed power generation and specialized energy applications.

When not in the lab or working on bringing emerging technologies to market, Taylor enjoys hunting down lost nuclear history and promoting a passion for science and technology in young people throughout the globe.

"AHA- Heart in Your Community"

Letitia Anderson, MD, FACC is the Chief of Cardiology at Renown and specializes in imaging, which encompasses all forms of non-invasive cardiology. Dr. Anderson studied medicine at the University of Vermont, Fletcher Allen Health Care, Medical Center Campus in Burlington, Vermont. As a younger cardiologist, Dr. Anderson feels especially blessed to be gifted with the opportunity meet, talk with and listen to people every day to help prevent disease and heal chronic and acute illness. For Dr. Anderson, listening to her patients is vital in helping her patients: “I think what’s important is to have an extra chair in the room to sit down and listen. That really can make a difference.” Dr. Anderson also “sees” patients in her down time hiking in Reno or skiing at Mt. Rose. Access to the outdoors pulled her family to Reno, and she loves that she and her family can be outside almost every day of the year.
