Exploring Innovations in Homelessness & Housing


Thank you to all who joined us and supported the Intersections Luncheon! It was an inspiring afternoon filled with new and old friends, as we discussed innovations in housing and how through partnership and collaboration, we will end homelessness in our community. 

Meet Joe Kiani

In 1989, Joe Kiani founded Masimo, a global medical technology company that develops and produces a wide array of industry-leading patient monitoring technologies, hospital and home automation, connectivity, and telehealth solutions, consumer health and wellness devices, and more. In addition, Masimo Consumer Audio is home to eight legendary audio brands, including Bowers & Wilkins, Denon, Marantz, and Polk Audio. Masimo’s mission is to improve life, improve patient outcomes, and reduce the cost of care.


Kiani is the co-inventor of what is now recognized as “modern pulse oximetry.” His invention overcame a problem the industry deemed “unsolvable” and reduced false alarms in pulse oximetry by 95%. With Masimo Signal Extraction Technology® (SET®), clinicians were able to reduce blindness in premature babies and more effectively screen them for critical congenital heart disease.  Read More...

After Lisa Shedlebower’s rent kept rising and she struggled to pay bills on a fixed income, she found herself homeless for five years in the San Clemente area. Then about 18 months ago, a nonprofit called Friendship Shelter found her a place to live in an apartment complex about two blocks from the beach in the city. “I’m very grateful to the Friendship Shelter—they saved my life,” Shedlebower told the Business Journal.
