Have you ever paused and thought about what it would take to be in the best health you could be? Sure, we’ve all envisioned our best selves. That picture typically doesn’t look like our current selves. And it would take a lot of help to really get there. Now imagine that you had all the help you needed to get there—from your primary care doctor, physician clinic and fitness studio to a dietician, alternative therapy provider and even your employer. Now imagine they were all in one place telling you how to be better.
That is exactly what’s happening from October 16 – 17 at The Believe in Better Project in Duluth, MN!
For its second year, The Believe in Better Project is bringing some of our country’s most provocative thought leaders and innovators together to share how they’re reshaping health care in America. But it’s not your typical theoretical best practices. Here, you’ll see and learn—through real stories of success and failure—how some of the most entrepreneurial business people in health care are working every day to improve the lives of people they serve.
This year, Believe in Better will feature powerful stories of:
- Transforming patient experience by transforming the people who provide it. More and more, we hear about physician burnout. Dr. William Maples will share how the Institute for Healthcare Excellence’s curriculum is “healing from within”.
- Creating healthier lives by creating healthier workplaces. Vickie Rice will talk about the advancements that CareATC is bringing to some of the country’s most innovative employers, including bringing data and evidence-based, preventive care onsite—or near it—to foster better outcomes for employees and families.
- Understanding the benefits of medical marijuana, and other applications in everyday health. Aaron Lachant has been at the front lines of crafting California’s cannabis policies, and will share his insights into the disruption and opportunity for health care providers.
Yes, this isn’t your typical health care summit. At the inaugural event in 2018, there was passionate discussion around several topics. The forum was constructed for plenty of dialogue. It’s one of the dynamics that made it so meaningful. So don’t come to Believe in Better expecting to just sit back. Expect to participate and share your ideas.
However you choose to participate, you can expect a better understanding of how health care innovators are breaking systematic boundaries to help people throughout America. You’ll hear real stories. With real results. And real ways you can create change, too.
Side note: you’ll also get to hang out in Duluth during one of the best weeks of the year and at one of its most iconic venues, historic Fitger’s on the shore of Lake Superior.
