Speaker Series: The Network Determinants of Health
Please RSVP at http://bit.ly/291YWpI
Increasingly, health systems connect devices, data, information and providers to improve the operations of the system and the outcomes for patients. Our session on September 27th will discuss another kind of connection essential for good health – the networks of people that provide support outside the traditional healthcare silo. How is health impacted when people connect with others as they live, work, study, pray and play? Might we be missing health opportunities when we focus mainly on the healthcare delivery silo? Our session will cover how the connections people have with others – organized into an information architecture of eight different networks – impact their health and ability to live a vibrant life.
Speaker Bio: Our speaker is Glenna Crooks, Ph.D., a strategist who organizes chaos and solves complex problems in health care. She is a former presidential appointee, pharmaceutical company executive and advisor to businesses and governments globally. Her latest project involves developing ways for people to understand and better manage the connections they have with others in their networks to achieve a healthy, satisfying and successful life.
