The partnership will allow USA Boxing athletes to undergo Wild Health’s proprietary precision medicine program, including genetic testing, in-depth bloodwork, a full functional medicine evaluation and continuing care. It also allows the USA Boxing coaching staff to expand their education and innovation in health and performance by participating in Wild Health’s precision medicine education program for health professionals.
“USA Boxing is constantly innovating to make sure that we give each boxer their best opportunity to be a champion in and outside of the ring. Similarly, Wild Health is constantly innovating to give their patients cutting edge tools to individualize the optimization of their health and performance,” stated Dr. Kirk O’Donnell, USA Boxing High Performance Medical Director. “As a team, we can ensure that our High Performance boxers have access to high quality healthcare year round while optimizing and fine-tuning their individual health and performance regardless of where they are training or competing.”
Wild Health’s individual health optimization plan is developed through a comprehensive data-driven analysis that may include:
- Genomic testing to determine a person’s genetic advantages, disadvantages, and predispositions, so the results can be used to optimize their health.
- Blood testing to evaluate lipids, thyroid function, cardiovascular risks, hormone status, minerals, vitamins, and other factors affecting health and performance.
- Longevity analysis to gauge a person’s biologic age through a DNA methylation test kit that is combined with genomic and blood test results.
- Lifestyle review that encompasses exercise routines, eating habits, family and social life, sleep patterns, hobbies, recreational activities, and goals.
“We’ve seen the power of precision medicine impact thousands - from diabetes to helping pro athletes reach career peaks,” said Matt Dawson, CEO of Wild Health. “We’re thrilled to support USA Boxing with this cutting edge practice of medicine and help our nation’s premier athletes continue to optimize and maximize their health and performance - in and out of the ring.”
