Welcome to episode six of Passionate Pioneers!
In this episode, we spent time with a national healthcare innovation leader who is guiding his organization to safely and sustainably reverse type 2 diabetes in 100 million people by 2025.
Amit Shah is the Head of Operations and Patient Success for Virta Health, where his focus is on leading a team of clinicians and customer service associates on delivering personalized, evidence-based continuous remote care to patients across the United States.
Amit joined Virta in 2016 and brings experience scaling operations and culture in entrepreneurial and high growth organizations. Prior to Virta, Amit was an early team member at Paladina Health, a direct primary care subsidiary of DaVita, and served as market leader and Vice President of Operations.
During our time together, Amit shared why Virta started, how they are handling their explosive growth, and where Amit sees the Virta mission continuing in the coming years and how you and your family can get involved.
Amit also shared some patient stories that are profound and demonstrate the remarkable power and results Virta is bringing to our communities across the nation.
At the end of the podcast, Amit called on all of us to to think about and discuss diabetes differently in our communities. Tune in for this very thought-provoking and actionable game plan that Amit shared with us!
I want to celebrate Amit and the entire Virta organization for their deep dedication and mission of reversing type 2 diabetes in 100 million people by 2025. Knowing Amit and his passion to make the world a better place, there is no doubt him and his team will achieve this lofty goal.
I hope you will support Amit and his team of passionate pioneers during their inspiring journey to help reimagine the health of our country!
