#177: Melissa Eamer, Founder & CEO of Modern Age

Presented by

Today, I’m joined by Melissa Eamer, founder & CEO of Modern Age, an aging wellness clinic based in NYC.

Melissa founded Modern Age after bearing witness to her mother’s physical and mental well-being deteriorate rapidly years prior. A digital-first care provider, the company leverages an internal medical team, evidence-backed treatments, and both virtual and in-person clinics to help patients increase their healthspans and quality of life.

In this episode, we talk about the company’s hybrid approach to aging well, using personalized biomarkers to determine holistic treatments, and the role of longevity science in public health.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How Melissa’s roles with Glossier and Amazon prepared her for Modern Age
  • How subjective health is essential to overall well-being
  • Modern Age’s offerings and how they optimize patients’ mental and physical health
