The Future of the Quantified Self Movement
with Dr. Michael Snyder
What if a $50 smart watch could give you early warning signs for illness, infection, and even disease? Prevention costs less and is more effective than just about any cure, but most of us don’t even manage to get an annual checkup at the doctor. This needs to change. On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet a leading researcher in the quantified self movement actively working to democratize data and personal health.

Listen & learn:

  • Genomics, proteomics, and omnics
