A Personalized and Effective Approach to Metabolic Syndrome Prevention

As rates of Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) and corresponding chronic disease – including obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke – continue to rise throughout North America, the need for innovation on preventative measures is critical. In the US, 79% of the population has one or more symptoms of MetS and 20% of all healthcare costs – ~$600B – are driven by conditions associated with MetS. Jeff is going to talk about a novel personalized health approach to MetS prevention gaining traction with major US insurers and employers to lower healthcare costs.
