Grammy-nominated rapper Rick Ross has entered a strategic partnership with Jetdoc, a new telehealth platform founded by healthcare entrepreneur Tommy Duncan.
Known for his stake in franchises like Checkers and Wingstop, Ross has signed on as an equity partner, advisor, and spokesperson for the newest tool to offer virtual healthcare. In his new role with Jetdoc, Rick Ross will “appear in creative campaigns, digital and television ads, and other promotional activations designed to educate and inform consumers of this innovative new offering in healthcare.”
“As an active artist and businessman, I often don’t have time to see a doctor. I’d make excuses and prioritize my healthcare second to my hustle,” said Rick Ross in a press release. “Jetdoc is a convenient and affordable alternative to going into a doctor’s office. To me, it’s really the future of healthcare. I wanted to be a part of empowering people to take control of their health regardless of their circumstances. Jetdoc puts the power of managing our health into our own hands.”
So how does Jetdoc compare to other telemedicine platforms in the market? The platform is said to be “setting the new standard for the virtual doctor visit” by providing reliable private care that keeps up with demands. Its mission is to “not only alleviate patients’ financial burdens but also improve access to both preventative and urgent care.”
“Healthcare isn’t just a passion for me, it’s a must,” says Jetdoc’s CEO, Tommy Duncan. “I had a stroke when I was 30 and despite working in the industry, I still had difficulty in getting proper care. So with Jetdoc, we created a tool that empowers everyone to take control and affordably manage their own healthcare. Adding Rick Ross to the team made perfect sense because he immediately understood our mission and he embodies the spirit of both ownership in both health and business.”
