Appetite for Life: Better Health Outcomes Now and for the Future
March 10 @ 12:00 pm
What if we can have better health outcomes, at a lower cost, now and for the future? Seriously.
Health is driven by four factors: clinical (10%), social (20%), genetics (30%), and behavior (40%). And yet, over 80% of our current health spending is on clinical services. The result? A declining life span and the highest cost per capita in the world. None of us working in public health or medicine should be satisfied with that result.
Join us as Katie Kaney, author of Both/And: Medicine & Public Health Together, discusses these issues and more with NRI’s Martin Kohlmeier, MD, PhD, professor of Nutrition.
This discussion is Friday, March 10 at noon on zoom.
Katie is a C-suite healthcare thought leader with over 25 years of experience developing and implementing innovative programs to enhance care, promote health and expand business models for success. A bestselling author, Both/ And: Medicine and Public Health Together charts a practical path toward better health outcomes at a lower cost, for all. She is the founder of the Whole Person Index, an advisor for companies including GE Healthcare, Pfizer, PeraHealth / Rothman Index, Guideway Care and UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, among others.

His goal is to translate this data into practical directions for people’s health.
