4.7 — Virta Health: Managing Health with Technology That Helps



Healthcare today is changing! We have technologies that are helping patients and physicians effectively manage chronic illnesses that years ago would severely impact and shorten the lives of those with illnesses like diabetes, heart disease and even cancer. Today, we are speaking with Virta Health, a company that is using technology, a treatment plan that is geared specifically for each patient and a team approach that has been clinically demonstrated to reverse type 2 diabetes safely and sustainably WITHOUT the risks, costs, or side effects of medications or surgery.

In studio today, we have Dr. Jim McCarter, MD, PhD and Head of Research for San Francisco-based Virta Health. Jim is an experienced biotech entrepreneur, adjunct professor of Genetics at Washington University School of Medicine (STL) and EIR with the Venture Fund BioGenerator here in STL. He is also the recipient of the Innovation Award from the Academy of Science (STL) and a Crown Fellow of the Aspen Institute. What an impressive individual, good friend and great colleague!

We also have by phone, Mike Halle, a Virta Health patient who will provide his perspective on this groundbreaking technology and treatment management system that has positively impacted his life.

If you have type 2 diabetes, of if you know someone that has this chronic illness, you don’t want to miss this episode—this can be a life changer! So, stay listening…
