You On a Diet: Is Alternative Medicine Ready for Prime Time?

How We Can Achieve the Good Life

Dr. Oz started as a heart surgeon and learned that people change more based on how they feel than what they know. He will use examples in exercise and obesity to review what holds us back from changing and how we can alter that destiny. There are 5 big adjustments that control 70% of how we age and he will tackle these using clips from the show and fundamental medical insights so the audience can take home actionable tips for their friends, family, and potentially clients. He will share some communication insights learned working with Oprah and on his own show over the past 15 years. New mobile approaches can help demonstrate how he sees the health field rapidly becoming dominated by digital influences, analogous changes are spreading to financial services and leisure options.
