Pegus speaks: “Within communities, what we’re doing is we’re partnering with health systems and health partners. … Our hope is that we’re identifying and finding people earlier on in any medical conditions to prevent their progression. But if they do have a progression, that we’re utilizing local healthcare resources to get them to the right care.”
