Dr. Crystal Rose, MD, PhD is the driving force behind OZY’s rocket-launch into the EDU world. OZY is a 4 year old multi-media company with a platform of 50M readers, viewers and listeners as well as free resources: $10,000 scholarships, paid internships and curricula. Now on a world-wide virtual tour examining the future of knowledge in education spaces around the nation. Seeking to instill new guidelines to elevate news journalism, Dr. Crystal Rose works to make OZY a shining beacon in an era where academic discourse and current events should be two sides of the same coin. Since completing her M.D./PhD at University of Heidelberg and Harvard, she has worked with universities globally.

Now, as OZY’s Executive Director of Academic Affairs, she continues to collaborate with schools, universities and education companies — all in an effort to bring the real world into the classroom.
