This time we are talking about our personal experience with disease leading to truly effective, targeted treatments. This is a leadership idea at the painful intersection of medicine and society.
We speak with Kyle Brown who founded Patient Crossroads to gather the true effects and cross pollinate cures for rare and common disease affecting everyone and their families.
If you collect the data from patients in a common manner about cardio-vascular disease, now you can start looking at pan-disease and start finding some really interesting correlations between disease that you many not have ever realized.
