This Is His Way in Our New Health Startup- Neil Patel

In 2012, I came across a study indicating that nine out of 10 health-related entries on Wikipedia are inaccurate (Wikipedia vs Peer-Reviewed Medical Literature for Information About the 10 Most Costly Medical Conditions). And perhaps more alarming still was evidence that medical-related content on Wikipedia was viewed 5 billion times in 2013 alone (Wikipedia's medical errors and one doctor's fight to correct them ).

Caredir Health site was crowned by the International Business Awards (2015) in 3 categories, namely Startup of the Year (Consumer Services Industries), Best New Product or Service of the Year (Health & Pharmaceuticals Service) and Health Products & Services...

Thin line between dreamers to doers: Thanks Neil...
