#176: Z Reitano, Co-founder & CEO of Ro

Presented by

Today, I’m joined by Zachariah “Z” Reitano, co-founder & CEO of Ro, a DTC healthcare company offering telehealth for primary care, mental health, sexual health and more.

After becoming frustrated in traditional healthcare during a personal struggle with ED, Z co-founded Roman to create more accessible and affordable men’s health treatments. Rebranding to Ro, the company extended its telemedicine model to treat issues in dermatology, fertility, sexual health, and weight loss.

In this episode, we discuss the company’s direct-to-patient digital health platform and Z shares his vision for reimagining the broken healthcare system. Plus, we talk about Ro’s newly launched Body Program for treating obesity.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How Ro fulfills its mission to make healthcare accessible to all
  • Z’s views on obesity and helping people lose weight with GLP-1 agonists
  • Ro’s future roadmap to improving more patients’ lives
