Imagine waking up and knowing exactly what foods you need, how much to move, what to drink, and the exact time to go to sleep to feel your best every day. It might seem far-fetched, but the world of personalized wellness is emerging, and it's changing the way we understand the human body and what is possible. In this episode of First In Line, we're joined by Anne Wojciki, the CEO of 23andMe, and Dr. Molly Maloof, a biohacker focused on human optimization. You'll learn about the things you can do today to feel, look, and perform better than ever — and the innovations of tomorrow that are helping you optimize every aspect of your health.
