You’ve likely heard the phrase...An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. My guest for this episode knows well the benefits of investing in wellbeing and building supportive environments for individuals at work and in their communities. It is easier to be healthy and well if the spaces we spend time in each day enable healthy choices and provide support in the form of positive relationships and connection. And, it’s far more efficient and cost effective to prevent ill health and try to repair it later.
Dr. Dexter Shurney is Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Community Wellbeing and the Blue Zones Institute, a “Living Lab” to create, study, and codify best practice, including a lifestyle medicine approach to care, that can be replicated across regions and communities of greatest need. Listen to hear how Dexter’s broad diversity of experience in health and workplace settings contribute to his broad ranging perspectives of the opportunities we have to enable wellbeing in the workplace.
NOTE: Dexter’s wifi was a bit unstable at times during our discussion. It’s brief and worth ignoring so you can listen and learn.
