Gil Blander: Nutrition & aging researcher

There is a plethora of science-backed information about how to optimize our health and wellbeing. The challenge, for most of us, is how to filter it and then apply the latest knowledge and innovations to our own lives.  There is undoubtedly a future in personalized medicine and the use of artificial intelligence, to guide our lifestyle decisions. InsideTracker is a health platform that curates peer-reviewed science and combines it with cutting edge technology, to provide insights for its users.  The goal is to make it easier to reach informed decisions about how best to live our lives.  Gil Blander, Phd., an MIT researcher in nutrition and aging, founded InsideTracker in 2009.  In this LLAMA podcast interview, he explains its mission to provide actionable, evidence-backed recommendations to improve health and wellness.
