About Our Guest:
Patrick Samy has always had a passion for pursuing knowledge. As a kid, he explored the internet of the early 2000s by building websites, and in college he supplemented his Computer Science degree with classes in design and neuroscience to broaden his learning experience. So when his passions led him from engineering to the intersection of healthcare and technology with Span, Patrick dove in headfirst.
Patrick was building Skype consumer products for his job with Microsoft when he noticed that his 10-hours-a-day desk job was taking a toll on his physical activity and long-term health markers. Concerned for his health, Patrick began monitoring his health metrics with various wearable technology. But though Patrick could track the data, it didn’t help him discover what his metrics meant—or how to fix them.
It was longevity MD Adam Bataineh who helped Patrick make sense of the data and change his lifestyle effectively. Patrick delved into the world of health and technology and realized he wasn’t the only one struggling to leverage his health metrics. So he and Adam created Span, a company that analyzes data from wearables to help people maximize their health potential. Patrick’s goal isn’t just to help people improve their health metrics. He wants to help them live their best lives for as long as possible.
