Mike Eisenhart comes on the show today for a great discussion into health promotion/prevention models in healthcare along with discussing some solutions on how to implement this into healthcare education. He also talks about the phenomenon of how beliefs within populations shift, difficulties with advocating population health to policy makers/companies and strategies to overcome them, and how prevention/health promotion needs to be addressed synergistically within different levels in a population.
