When they were Waldorf students at the Sacramento Waldorf School, Kim-Fredrik Schneider and his friend Abraham Heitzeberg were dear friends. When Abraham passed at age twelve from Werdnig-Hoffmann disease, Kim was inspired to go into medicine and created a mobile health app named in tribute to Abe -- Abi Global Health.

A licensed physician is on call to provide a micro-consultation and typically answers within five minutes."
