More than Pills and Scalpels: the Future of Healthcare in Kansas

We'll be talking about the intersection of public health and clinical practice in three broad areas: 1) the effect of the built environment on health, 2) the utilization of artificial intelligence and physician extenders in healthcare, and 3) the effect of isolation or "neighboring" on health.

We're all diabetes doctors, whether we want to be or not. The prevalence of type 2 diabetes has roughly doubled since 1994, with 29 million Americans now carrying the diagnosis and another 86 million at risk. Over that same time period, type 2 diabetes has become the primary driver of health care expenditures, accounting indirectly for over $250 billion and directly for over $100 billion in healthcare expenditures in 2015 alone. It remains the leading cause of blindness, foot amputations, and dialysis. But there's hope. Starting in 2018, CMS will begin paying for patients with pre-diabetes to go through the Diabetes Prevention Program, a behavior change program proven to reduce the risk of diabetes by 60%. We're now empowered to stop diabetes before it starts. Learning how to prevent diabetes at the individual patient level and not just treat its complications: it's Diabetes Done Differently.
