My presentations are tailored to meet the needs of the individual attendees
and the sponsoring organization.
I couple my experience as a clinician and innovator with relevant scientific studies designed to motivate individuals to change their beliefs and behaviors. However, achieving dramatic improvement in both patient care and the performance of organizations requires additional concepts developed outside the medical industry. I combine key concepts from management, quality improvement, natural capitalism, and levering change in complex systems with the best clinical science in primary and secondary prevention. I view each presentation as a “prescription” for each attendee to achieve dramatic improvement in their personal and professional lives.
Depending on the needs of the sponsoring organization my presentations can be given as a single presentation, a series or seminar.
