Moderator: Bradly Jacobs, MD, MPH, ABIHM, ABOIM

About Bradly

Brad Jacobs MD MPH ABOIM, is an integrative medicine physician, educator, and author. He believes the current US healthcare delivery system and medical school education curriculum is deeply flawed in it's myopic focus on treating disease, at the exclusion of training physicians on health creation – how do we inspire, empower, and reward people about their health. He believes individuals should have the right to access high quality information, inter-professional experts, as well as their own medical records in order to make informed decisions to optimize their health and well-being.
