Co-Founder, NutriCount Inc.
Challenge: How Can We Help People Prevent, Detect, and Manage Chronic Diseases, Especially in Resource-Limited Settings?
Solution: NutriCount - An Unconventional Approach to fight Diabetes & other chronic diseases
NutriCount helps Type 2 Diabetes patients and others with chronic diseases improve their nutrition at every food purchase. We do this by asking them to take pictures of their grocery receipts and we turn them into nutrition information, recommendations, and incentives. For providers and payers, we enable them to monitor and proactively intervene patient's nutrition in between hospital visits.
