Opening Discussion Topic:
Thankfully, “the COVID era” is beginning to recede into the background, with over 15% of Californians having already received at least one COVID vaccine, and the trendline for COVID-hospitalized patients rapidly declining.
So now is the time to start planning for a healthier tomorrow – and moving into the “Blue Zones,” where healthier people move naturally, have a purposeful outlook, eat wisely, belong – and live longer.
During our Group Discussion, we’ll look to hear your post-COVID plans for yourself and your healthcare business – and how they’ve been informed by lessons learned during the pandemic. And, of course, we’ll want to hear what else is burning on your plate.
Then, our Featured Guest Speaker, Dexter Shurney, MD, Executive Director of the Blue Zone Institute (BZI), and SVP/CMO of Adventist Health’s Well-Being Division, will introduce us to BZI’s “Living Lab” that AH has created to study and codify best practices for living longer, healthier lives, informed by the world’s longest-lived cultures.
Prior to joining Adventist Health, Dexter Shurney, MD, was President of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, in which comprehensive lifestyle changes are used to help treat, reverse, and prevent the progression of many chronic diseases. He was also CMO/SVP Clinical Affairs for venture-backed Foodsmart, Inc. (AKA Zipongo), which is used by employers and health plans improve the health and well-being of their workers.
