February 28, 2024Liz Beaulieu, Editor

SARASOTA, Fla. – Bill Shoop, who spent 20 years working his way up the ladder at ResMed, says his move to React Health is about “unfinished business.”  “I still think there’s a lot of work to do,” said Shoop, React Health’s new CEO. “I think, as we’ve started to understand more about sleep disorders and respiratory insufficiencies, the approach to diagnosis and treatment has stayed the same.
