In this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Patrick Samy. Patrick is the CEO and Co-Founder of Span Health, a platform and coaching program for data-driven health.
Because research and data are more and more easily available today, a lot of people are beginning to question the typical western medical practice. This ease of information has many people trying to control their own destiny when it comes to their health.
Patrick Samy was confronted with conflicting advice and a lack of support from his doctor and dietitian, he quickly realized that most medical professionals often lack crucial time to avoid using dietary guidelines as a one-size-fits-all. This most often results in medical professionals relying more on medication for long-term management. His personal journey drove his passion to find a solution to this very problem that he and many others face. And this is how Health Span was created. Health Span is a data-driven health coaching platform that uses your data to help you maximize your health performance. In this episode, Patrick shares his entrepreneurial journey and the story of the inception of Health Span.
