Interview of “People’s Choice” HealthTech Company of 2012: Jim Kean, CEO and Founder, WellnessFX

WellnessFX was the winner of the "People's Choice" at the recent HealthTech Conference on October 26, 2012. Personally, I am very excited in the WellnessFX accomplishments so far.

The results came back via the web a couple of days later..and had a few genetic surprises I never knew about with some of my 30 biomarkers..the telehealth consult was amazing: the physician customized her feedback to my need and was a highly qualified physician (For full disclosure, HealthTech Capital is an investor in Wellness FX).
