This week’s episode of The Profit Express is brought to you by Corbett Public Relations, Promoting and Protecting Businesses and Brands for over 30 years.
Developing the Vision
Inspiration always comes from a personal crisis. At 4:30, Sergey discusses how a personal health crisis inspired him to not only redefine his health strategy, but to bring it to 1 billion people.
What is aging?
It seems like we all follow a similar pattern. We are born, grow up, have kids, care for our kids, and then die. But what happens when we start to age in our 40s? Listen at 6:40 as Sergey defines aging, and how Mother Nature plays a role in why we age.
Wearing Your Health
Apple Watch, FitBit, Garmin. It seems everyone has a fitness track on at all times. At 16:50, Sergey talks about how these wearables can transform accessibility within the healthcare industry, changing lives and extending our lifespans as a result.
Healthier, Not Just Longer
A longer lifespan doesn’t always mean a healthier lifespan. It is a fear of many that they will be kept alive, but have to rely on machines to keep their bodies running. As Sergey explains at 24:45, the focus of the Longevity Vision Fund is to allow people to live not just a longer life, but a healthier one.
AI Meets Doctors
There’s many unknowns when it comes to Artificial Intelligence. Listen at 37:30 as Sergey discusses how the world is not all black and while, and how in the future we can expect doctors and AI to work together to care for us.
