Niha Zubair, Arivale Clinical Research Scientist, PhD
Years of late nights, big meals, and bad habits were catching up with Daniel Rossi. At 38, he was 5-foot-11, nearly 260 pounds, and newly diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.
When Daniel joined Arivale this Fall—ready to make big changes and gain control of his wellness—he joined with a unique motivator. An audience of thousands.
As part of a year-long series, Daniel is bravely documenting his Arivale journey publicly for Geekwire readers, a Seattle-based tech news website for which he is the Chief Business Officer.
“Seriously, this is sort of laying myself out there,” he told Geekwire. “So yeah, I’m a little bit nervous, but I hope that this is an interesting enough story for folks to get around, and I can have some accountability there. I think that’s going to be a lot of fun. I have to do this. … I have to. I want to get healthy, and this is a great opportunity to do it.”
As part of the Arivale program, Daniel will work with a personal Arivale Coach—Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Ginger Hultin—who will look at his data from genetics, blood, saliva, gut microbiome, and lifestyle and craft a wellness program completely tailored to his body and his goals.
And Daniel’s already hard at work. Follow along with us on Geekwire to see what changes Daniel’s made so far, what he’s discovered from his body’s data, and where his journey is taking him.
