We the Founders and leadership of Fountain Life seek to build a global company delivering the most advanced diagnostics and vetted therapeutics to those who seek a longer, healthier and more vital life.
We seek to extend member healthspan by using a foundation of "functional medicine-based protocols" plus an annual 150 Gb "Upload" of imaging, genetic and blood-related diagnostics. Our goal is to reliably predict future disease, and to detect any such disease at the earliest moment possible, thereby stopping and ultimately reversing its progression, returning our member to peak performance.
Fountain and its network of physicians and scientists are constantly scanning the world searching for low-risk, high-reward therapeutic treatments. Once vetted, those treatments with the greatest promise are made available to all members through our Centers. Fountain requires that treatments delivered to its members are either FDA approved, or delivered under an approved investigational protocol.
Fountain believes that there is no substitution for a brilliant and thoughtful medical team delivering healthcare services. As such, we have developed an innovative care model, utilizing a vertically integrated, 6-person 'healthcare team'. Each Fountain Member is supported by a Concierge Physician, Nurse Practitioner, and a group of four health care coordinators and coaches. These teams are trained to the highest standards at Fountain University in accordance with A4M, the Functional Medical Institute and other cutting edge partnerships.
Finally, Fountain also is making use of the most advanced artificial intelligence technologies available in order to enable a smooth and seamless member experience, while at the same time mining our vast data-set to glean personalized insights capable of bestowing lifesaving consequences.
