Fountain Life named as exclusive 2023 sponsor of GWI’s Wellness Moonshot campaign

Fountain Life named as exclusive 2023 sponsor of GWI’s Wellness Moonshot campaign
October 27, 2022

Fountain Life, whose mission is to change healthcare from reactive to preventive, will be the exclusive 2023 sponsor of GWI’s Wellness Moonshot campaign to create a world free of preventable disease.

The GWI will work closely with Fountain Life’s executive team which includes medical and business leaders Dr. Robert Harari, Dr. Bill Kapp, Dr. Rakesh Suri, Shawn Buchheit, Dr. Peter Diamandis and Tony Robbins - to create programs that can meaningfully impact behaviour worldwide.

Global healthcare expenditures have more than doubled in the last two decades, reaching $8.5 trillion annually, but according to the World Health Organization, obesity, diabetes and hypertension rates have also more than doubled in roughly the same time. 74% of all deaths globally are now a result of noncommunicable diseases, the vast majority of which are preventable chronic diseases that, the World Economic Forum estimates, will cost the world a staggering $47 trillion by 2030. 

The Wellness Moonshot, launched by the GWI in 2017 with the support of medical leaders Dr. Andrew Weil of the University of Arizona, Dr. Michael Roizen of the Cleveland Clinic, and Dr. Richard Carmona, former US Surgeon General, has worked to bring together global wellness leaders to eradicate preventable disease. This initiative has brought its themed monthly wellness education campaigns into global workplaces, schools and homes, impacting over 160 million people. Fountain Life is a fast-growing company that aims to create a newly preventative healthcare model through data-driven technologies that can identify and treat illnesses at their earliest stages.  

The GWI and Fountain Life’s executive team will work closely together in 2023 to dramatically expand the reach and resources of the Wellness Moonshot to help many millions more people make healthy changes. 

The partnership is not only with GWI, but with its sister organisation, the Global Wellness Summit. Fountain Life is a Diamond Sponsor of the conference being held in Tel Aviv, Israel from 31st October to 3rd November with Dr. Bill Kapp, the company’s Chief Executive, and Rakesh M. Suri, MD, D.Phil, its president and chief medical officer, will be featured on panels on the future of longevity science. 

Dr. Kapp notes “Fountain Life’s partnership with the Global Wellness Institute and the Wellness Moonshot marks the beginning of a first of its kind campaign to leverage today’s innovators from the medical, health and wellness industries to develop a healthcare model centered around eradicating preventable disease in 2023. By utilising a data-driven approach that focuses on the diagnosis and prevention of illnesses, Fountain Life may contribute to changing the course of global health by empowering individuals to be the leaders of their own longevity. The Global Wellness Institute brings together international leaders at the forefront of health and wellness, and we are honoured to participate in this effort to invent a new health paradigm.”

Nancy Davis, GWI chief creative officer and executive director adds “there are moments in life when the planets align, and that is what happened on a call with Fountain Life leadership. As they described their mission, it was as if they were reading the mission of the Wellness Moonshot.

“We knew we had found perfect partners with whom to take this project to the next level. With the prominence of Fountain Life’s executive team, their revolutionary business model, the global reach of the Wellness Moonshot, and our shared commitment to eradicating preventable disease, we could not be more excited about 2023.”
