With the array of health tools at our disposal in today’s digital landscape, how can we use wellness technology in a new era to create and maintain better health?
From the apps that track our sleep and movement to the genetic testing that can help us design the ideal eating plan, our world is filled with powerful tools to quantify our lives.
It’s fascinating that we can monitor so many aspects of our lifestyle and utilize various tools to accelerate our health and healing, but we also must ask a very important question:
With advances in our digital world, how exactly do we use these new technologies to ensure long-term health and behavior change?
On this episode of Wellness Force Radio, we explore this topic and much more with Justin Andrews Founder of AXON, Co-Founder of Mind Pump Media, and Yaron Hadad, the Co-Creator and Chief Science Officer of Nutrino.
During this exclusive, in-person interview in San Jose at the Mind Pump Studio, we discuss how to cross the bridge between having the data and tools and knowing what to do with them.
