A new lens on tackling diabetes and improving health outcomes
There are many life-shortening diseases linked to diabetes, but the problem of slow-healing wounds is often overlooked. Approximately 15 percent of diabetics will develop a foot ulcer at some point and the healing process can be painfully slow. Kevin Lamb is the co-founder and CEO of Advanced Tissue, the US leader in the delivery of wound care supplies. He is also a man on a mission to educate people about health care and spread the word about life-saving interventions that are accessible to everyone. Kevin is also a film-producer with a critically-acclaimed portfolio of work in Hollywood, such as the drama, Wakefield, starring Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston, and the thriller Marshall. In this in-depth interview, Kevin explains his passion for story-telling; the power of innovation in health care and his personal drive to live a long, healthy and purposeful life.
