Theranos promised to revolutionize the healthcare industry, raised nearly $1B in funding, attained a $9B valuation, and assembled a high-powered board of directors of former secretaries of state, secretaries of defense, 4 star generals, and senators. Tyler was 22 years old, fresh out of college, and eager to join a company that was being touted as "the apple of healthcare."
