We framed much of our Research Think Tank on well-being last week around one of the best examples I know of that catalyzes a super smart group who are determined to improve health and well-being in America. Sound familiar? Dr. Carley Riley, a researcher from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) joined us to review their "100 Million Healthier Lives" campaign. If the system IHI envisions is built well, they hope to "fundamentally transform the way the world thinks and acts to improve health and well-being." Nico Pronk from HealthPartners said "we can treat 100 million healthier lives as our own." Such enthusiastic adoption is precisely what Riley hoped for when she accepted our invitation. My sincere thanks to my colleague Dr. Jessica Grossmeier who so memorably organized and led our sessions. Our full
Think Tank Proceedings
features presentations and PowerPoint slides from eight other nationally recognized experts in health and well-being. HERO members can access two of the
Think Tank Webinars
in our Resource Center. Don't miss reading about Dr. Ron Goetzel's "Do the Duh!" idea and how this silly notion may well be precisely what it takes for HERO members to help IHI realize their dream.
