“There’s a lack of transparency in a system where we’re dealing with people’s health…it’s a tricky, frustrating space, but we’re just trying to do our small part to change that.”

- Jason Belvill (USAFA ‘08)

Jason Belvill is the Co-Founder & Director of Operations for BodySpec where he combines a passion for athletics with singular expertise in engineering to help design and oversee BodySpec's mobile scanning trucks. BodySpec’s mobile DEXA scans help people learn about their bodies so they can improve their overall health. Originally from Seattle, WA, Jason graduated from the Air Force Academy in 2008 where he was captain of the All-Armed Forces Soccer Team. In addition to soccer, CrossFit, and doughnuts, Jason enjoys world travel, having visited over 20 countries.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • What BodySpec is and how it works
  • The unique biomarkers that BodySpec analyzes
  • What a DEXA scan is and why BodySpec utilizes them
  • Why BodySpec wants to make preventative health accessible
  • How BodySpec is reducing friction in the healthcare industry

Jason also shares how BodySpec helps clients achieve their health goals, including the company’s long-term plans to develop a comprehensive healthcare dashboard and new technology that detects skin cancer. We enjoyed hearing how Jason has come to understand the compliance and regulatory environment within the healthcare industry and learning more about the operational friction points he’s identified and improving upon. We’re proud of Jason’s perseverance in the healthcare industry and excited to see how he and the BodySpec team continue to transform the space to help others stay healthy.
