Focus of the Roundtable

Lifestyle Medicine: The Convergence of Industry Verticals to Ensure Optimal Health

 

Lifestyle Medicine is no longer just a term. A movement to organize healthcare professionals passionate about supporting the promotion of health, rather than the treatment of disease alone, is gaining traction in various regions of the globe.[1] The fragmented approach to health and wellness is under continued scrutiny, as the demand to aggregate and analyze the full picture of a person’s wellbeing rises. Shifts in generational purchasing power signal an increase in the desire for prevention of disease onset via personalized understanding of wellness and increased visibility to risk factors that would precede disease onset. This focus on preventing ‘chronic illness’ and protecting individuals suggests the science necessary to drive health prevention outcomes requires expertise beyond the current focus of one industry vertical. Expertise in agriculture, food and nutrition, and healthcare are all required to generate the best possible solutions for personal wellness and disease prevention.

 

What does all of this mean then for the future of the industry verticals?  Where are all of the diverse parties getting together to work on improving health?
