Americans deserve a healthcare system that supports health in our daily living and doesn’t only fix us when we’re sick. It is our daily living- the actions we take regarding nutrition, fitness, sleep, mental health, relationships, financial management and how these are impacted by social determinants – that make up the vast majority of what governs our health and total well-being. Yet, our healthcare system primarily treats sickness with limited support for preventing illness. Now, imagine a world in which the healthcare system actually works with people on improving their total health, a world in which our health status improves not only because of biotechnological advancements, but also because consumers are given personalized health improvement resources to become their best advocates. A world where healthcare becomes proactive instead of reactive!
