The healthcare industry in the US is rapidly changing. Massive diagnostic data (DNA, blood, microbiome, sensors) combined with AI algorithms are allowing us to create predictive platforms that can analyze, educate and create personal health & Wellness plans for individual consumers.

In the next 5 years, smart and modern health platforms like Vitagene will give you personal plans around your diet, supplementation, skin, sleep. The platform can track what medications you are taking and what side effects it has? it can tell you if it is time to test your bio-markers and which ones? it can tell you if your diet is ideal given your microbiome, DNA and lifestyle goals. We can provide an amazing high quality healthcare advisor for free in your pocket. A smart and modern platform that is always analyzing, learning and helping you decide on all aspects of your wellness routines.

Are you passionate about helping us achieve this vision? Do you believe that food is medicine? do you think we can help people live a healthier and happier life on a daily basis? Are you pissed off that we spent $3 trillion a year on expensive medications and invasive treatment plans. While ignoring how people manage their bodies on a daily basis? Do you think it is crazy to ignore the root cause of disease which is mostly behavioral in nature and focus on treating the symptoms of the disease? if you are, then you should apply to join us.
