On Community as Medicine with Elizabeth Markle
Thu 12/5/19 @ 7:00 PM PT
Elizabeth Markle is a clinical psychologist turned radical community health innovator who brings decades of intentional community experience to her re-visioning of healthcare. Join Dr. Markle as she shares her journey launching her community and “behavioral pharmacy”, Open Source Wellness, and her vision for the transformation of our nation’s clinical and social systems. In this talk, Dr. Markle examines how we might move from a healthcare system featuring one expensive expert and one disempowered patient in one tiny room for 12 minutes, shrouded by veils of confidentiality, shame, and isolation, to animating community as a platform for health.
