Heather and I attended this conference in New York City on January 17th, 2013. The meeting was held in the World Trade Center Complex, Building 7. For a non-city dweller, it was difficult to identify the building even after getting explicit directions from the hotel concierge. After walking right past the entrance, a helpful police officer pointed at the 60 story glass-fronted building and said, in a wonderful New York City accent: “It’s right there in front of you—you can’t miss it.” I walked toward it, around it, and eventually Heather appeared near the entrance.

This focus on prevention – often referred to as “wellness” – is being embraced in all areas of healthcare as we are finally recognizing that it will take a collective effort by everyone – healthcare institutions, businesses, educators, government and communities – to create a healthier nation. One strategy that is gaining attention is the concept of a “Primary Care Medical Home.” According to Joint … Read more
Reaching a state of health and wellness is just half of the process—sustaining wellness is the other half. And if you have made changes purposefully in your life before now, you probably know that often, however well-intentioned, they don’t seem to last. The key to making a sustainable change, one that is lasting, is recognizing the difference between translational change and transformational change. We will be talking about this difference often, but briefly, you might recognize translational change as one that gets us from point A to point B and has an end-point of just a few weeks—like starting a … Read more
