1_4Cu-0mJYYoL66OUAaHCANQ.jpg

On Cool Science Radio, John Wells and Lynn Ware Peek talk with Dr. Dan Riskin, who has extensive experience founding healthcare tech startups.

He’ll give us the latest information on the Theranos trial. Therano’s was the American, privately held corporation founded by then 19-year old Elizabeth Holmes.

It was touted as a breakthrough health technology company, with claims of having devised simple blood tests. Investors were bilked out of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Riskin joins to discuss how to decipher which healthcare startups can be trusted and how as consumers or investors we can be more aware.
