The app integrates with the participants personalized protocol to include protocol compliance advice, videos, questionnaires, activity tracking and reminders focused on supplements, diet, exercise, sleep and stress management. The app also enables dialogue through secure messaging, text and video.

It allows us to extend our precise, science-based protocol through this personalized app, continuously capturing feedback from our participants” says Denise Kalos, COO of AFFIRMATIVhealth.
