Florence was born with a beautiful, brilliant identical twin: Harriet. They started life as a single fertilized zygote, yet Florence always knew they differed. While Florence loves to eat fish, Harriet definitely did not. While Harriet is a marvellous gardener, Florence struggled to keep a houseplant happy. These insights led Florence to the realization that if her genomic makeup did not match her identical twin, then genes do not necessarily dictate destiny. And that has turned out to be true. As Florence's research of more than 2 decades would go on to reveal, our health trajectory is a composite of multiple factors, which must be analyzed to reverse aging and prevent chronic diseases, allowing for life-long optimal health. And that is the breakthrough she's passionate about!
At Yale Medical School (YMS), Florence was 1 of only 9 women in her graduating class of 100, she thrived due to her insatiable curiosity and drive to learn. Yale Medical School encouraged independence and research in their students. Florence won a Salk Award for her research, prior to entering medical school, then graduated with a research award and distinction for her original research thesis required at YMS. Following her residency at Yale, she went to the National Institutes of Medicine, with a clinical and research fellowship in endocrinology, returning to Yale University, as a faculty member with a triple appointment in Endocrinology (Internal Medicine and Pediatrics) and Reproductive Endocrinology (Gynecology and Andrology). Florence continued her original research, bringing new concepts and therapies that revolutionized health care around the world for thousands of people, founded Women’s Health at Yale in 1992, ultimately incorporating men and children, created her private center, The Comite Center for Precision Medicine, in Manhattan, NYC, and in Silicon Valley, CA.
Florence believes in a future where everyone around the globe can afford access to cutting-edge care distinctly tailored as N-of-1, uniquely meant for a singular human. Furthermore, Florence’s ability to detect patterns in precision data collected and married to a personalized health story, led to her insights and her ability to predict disease and reverse aging with actionable interventions, that has been evident to her more than 2 decades. The basis of her work in her private center is derived from her original pattern recognition.
Today, we know that Florence’s abilities to see biomarker patterns translates to Artificial Intelligence or AI, and the data is currently under active investigation to yield Machine Learning or ML, and ultimately automate insights and interventions through the digital app. The latter will be launched through her new company, GROQ Health, developing the Digital App, which will offer Florence’s services via GROQ Health. Florence’s private center remains the active repository of over 15 years of longitudinal data in thousands of individuals followed through clinically designed research protocols which reveal proof of her concepts. The Comite Center will continue to act as the “Living N-of-1 Lab” for those who seek a bespoke and futuristic approach to age reversal and optimizing health for life. Florence is working with her team on the transformative digitalized technology in GROQ Health to make the identical methodology a reality for the world!
Dr. Florence Comite is a physician-scientist and innovator in the field of precision medicine, internationally known for her expertise in leveraging N-of-1 data to detect, predict, and reverse disorders of aging for optimal health and vitality. In 2005, Dr. Comite founded the Center for Precision Medicine & Health in New York City, where she established a clinically proven, academic approach to personalized precision health care, structured as a clinical trial. By integrating and interpreting genomic, metabolomic, phenotypic, and digital health data, the Center provides predictive analysis and actionable guidance for individuals. Dr. Comite’s global clientele spans the population, from forward-thinking physicians to jet-setting executives, celebrities, and self-quantifying millennials. Dr. Comite’s startup GROQ Health™ scales her unique approach to personalized, actionable precision medicine as a digital application.
Dr. Comite is a graduate of Yale School of Medicine where she was a faculty member for 25 years, with a triple appointment in Endocrinology (Internal Medicine and Pediatrics) and Reproductive Endocrinology (Gynecology and Andrology). Dr. Comite trained at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, National Institutes of Health (NIH). In 1992, Dr. Comite founded Women’s Health at Yale.
Dr. Comite has published original research in numerous clinical journals and contributes regularly to editorial publications. She speaks to audiences around the world as a sought-after keynote speaker. She is the Amazon bestselling author of Keep It Up: The Power of Precision Medicine to Conquer Low T and Revitalize Your Life.
Unlike conventional medicine, N-of-1 looks at your unique make-up; your hormones, metabolism, genomics and other key bits and bites all in one.
Standardized medicine is meant for ‘average’ people, the most common denominator: it is not specific to you and your unique health profile. We apply what works for you personally, your health story and your precision data.
We don't have a 'goal weight or perfect diet.’ No one size fits all. Our N-of-1 core concept is distinctly different. Your personal goals count.
You will achieve optimal health, reverse aging, and stop disease from emerging. That is vital for your future, to live life to the fullest.
Florence Comite believes that in 50 years, humans could be living to 150 and staying healthy to the very last moment of their lives. With the power of precision medicine, doctors could detect, predict, and prevent symptoms and diseases from ever coming to the surface. A world where disorders of aging, such as diabetes heart disease, stroke, cancer, osteoporosis, Parkinson, Alzheimer’s, are a rarity, and the chronic disease epidemic will be a distant memory.
How? By defining N-of-1 medicine, we go beneath the surface to the cellular level and see what cannot be seen without symptoms, such as low energy, fatigue , a headache, or a low sex drive. Using technology available today to digitalize complex integrated health profiles, we could radically scale the cost to a few dollars per year of personalized precision medicine, utilizing health stories and data, to the health trajectories, predict disease and reverse aging, saving countless lives, with productive and joyful years for anyone with a smart phone in their hand.
