Mission: Reverse Diabetes (trailer)

Even while being a world-class athlete
and in his mind doing everything right,
he got results that showed
that he was pre-diabetic.
What happens when you are first diagnosed,
it’s like shocking.
Like, “How could I have this?”
All this good stuff
that was supposedly healthy…
it was pretty clear to me that I had exceeded
my personal carbohydrate tolerance level.
It’s a social injustice
what’s happening to people with diabetes.
Changing your lifestyle is not easy.
I’m sure many people can relate to that,
and having a coach behind you
to help you make those changes
I think makes
all the difference in the world.
People are surprised by our mission which is
to reverse diabetes in 100 million people.
I really started Virta to help millions
of people living with type 2 diabetes,
get access to better care
and then reverse their type 2 diabetes.
I still tear up when I watch
our testimonial videos,
I still envy our health coaches and the sort
of direct patient interaction that they have,
because some of us working on the software
can be a little bit more removed from it.
To help this many people,
working with a leader that you trust
and a leader that has a very clear vision
based on personal experience,
I felt it was a great decision to join.
He is a person who is willing
to think outside the box.
He is honest, he is forthcoming,
he is very thoughtful and very strategic.
He is on a mission
and he’s definitely like that right now.
