Joining Metabolic Multiplier's Military & Veterans team

Dr. Jeff Volek was gracious enough to attend our first 3 strategy meetings for "Promoting Metabolic Health for the military and veterans." He was gracious enough to reply to Cecile's cold-email and even thanked us for the invitation.

After watching the Nutrition Coalition struggle to change the USDA dietary guidelines, Metabolic Multiplier pulled together a military and veterans teams to strategize supporting those federal practitioners. We also brought in expertise on how other major research projects have gotten funded with a forma DARPA project manager, former nuclear submarine captain, veterans, & practitioners.
