This week on The Art Of Being Well I had the privilege to speak to InsideTracker founder Dr. Gil Blander. The two of us think along the same lines of how we look at each patient and customer through the lense of bioindividuality - meaning what is right for one person may not be right for another. Dr. Blander’s company InsideTracker uses blood testing, DNA testing, and daily lifestyle information to find the supplemental and lifestyle changes that will impact each individual most. Listen in to learn more about this amazing company and how it’s helping each customer reach optimal health. 

Dr. Gil Blander is internationally recognized for his research in the basic biology of aging and translating research discoveries into new ways of detecting and preventing age-related conditions. He leads a team of biology, nutrition & exercise physiology experts, and computer scientists at InsideTracker, and has been featured in CNN Money, The New York Times, Forbes, Financial times, The Boston Globe to name a few.  Dr. Blander received a Ph.D. in biology from the Weizmann Institute of Science and completed his Post Doctoral fellowship at MIT.

In 2009 Dr. Blander founded InsideTracker alongside leading scientists in aging, genetics and biometric data from MIT, Tufts, and Harvard to realize his mission  to improve the healthspan of people everywhere so they can enjoy longer, healthier lives - adding life to their years and years to their life.
