McCarter talks about how Virta Health gets more precise about Type II diabetes treatments

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.
