Webinar Summary

Myles Spar, MD, MPH shares his belief that the annual health check-up appointment is not designed to prevent disease and reduce mortality. He explains that disease prevention requires a more comprehensive medical approach than simply checking metabolic panels. Dr. Spar explores the 5 P’s of medicine, which include a predictive, preventive, personalized, participatory, and purpose-driven approach. He explains why the lifestyle modification tools you are providing patients may not be translating into meaningful health improvements. Instead, you will glean information and tools designed to make a difference in clinical outcomes.
