Putting Health Back in Healthcare
John Wenger, DO
RMH Integrative Medicine
Our current healthcare system is sick. The leading chronic diseases of the US are primarily diseases of lifestyle. How can we restore better health to our ailing system and experience wellness in our personal lives in a more complete way? We are at a â€œtipping pointâ€ where new approaches to education and healthcare are desperately needed. Dr. Wenger takes us on a journey that addresses these issues head-on as he shares his perspectives as an integrative medicine physician. Integrative medicine provides necessary tools for those pursuing a career in healthcare and for everyone who desires to optimize their health.
