Who or what influences the everyday behaviors of Americans? Apple Inc.? McDonald's? Facebook? What can I learn from them to improve health on a population level? How can those of us in health care collaborate in innovative ways with corporations to market healthy behaviors?
My goal is to help all people live their lives to the fullest; optimal health is vital to reaching that goal. Adequate health care allows people to do what they would like to do and what they need to do for themselves, their families and their communities.
I believe there are ways to leverage technology and strategies to improve health that are already important parts of people's daily lives (i.e., social media, mobile technology, marketing) versus interventions that add elements that interrupt their daily routines and habits.
