There's an innovative movement afoot in healthcare: people are taking their health into their own hands, and providers are paying attention.

More and more medical professionals are taking an integrative approach to keep their patients healthy and thriving, and advocating for methods by which ordinary people at home can take preventative and proactive steps to curb disease and poor health.

Come hear from this array of innovators about the ways they are making change: by providing people means of testing at home, by bringing meditation and breathwork to patients in hospitals (former Pro Bowl NFL linebacker, Keith Mitchell), by advocating for yoga in conjunction with Western medicine (Chief of Neurosurgery, NYU Langone Hospital, Dr. Erich Anderer), by using natural plant-based remedies before pharmaceutical prescriptions (Licensed Acupuncturist and Clinical Herbalist, William Siff), and by creating a clinic that upends traditional health care methods to put the whole health of the patient first (Dr. Robin Berzin of Parsley Health).
