Leading the Way in Health and Wellness Tourism

Health and Wellness Tourism

TODAYS GUEST Dr. Seth Marquit, Medical Director of The Pritikin Longevity Center and Spa

Dr. Marquit joined us to give us an understanding of how people that participate in Health and Wellness Tourism are measurably improving their health.

Specifically, we discuss the following with Dr. Marquit:

  1. Why do people participate in Pritikin’s programs?
  2. What types of results do patients see after participating in Pritikin’s programs?
  3. What are some specialty programs available for patients at Pritikin?
  4. How do you go to market? Do you market directly to customers and/or employers?
  5. What is the typical day for a patient at Pritikin?
  6. What is next for Pritikin? What new services will you be introducing as we head into 2016?
