Here's my interview with Jim McCarter, Head of Research at Virta Health. Virta is an online specialty medical clinic that reverses type 2 diabetes safely and sustainably,without the risks, costs, or side effects of medications or surgery. 

McCarter spoke at SplashX Invent Health - Precision Health, where I had an opportunity to speak with him about how Virta Health was able to build precision health model that allows you scale around the population.
