Evening Lectures - Pensacola

Dan Pardi

THE TALK: Actual Health

In his talk entitled Actual Health – which parallels a book that he is co-authoring with former IHMC guest, Dr. Josh Turknett – Dr. Pardi will cover fundamental questions about what health means and why it’s been so challenging to provide a definition that is universally agreed upon without legitimate dispute. It is a challenge that has seen more progress from philosophers than basic scientists. He will also cover major gaps in our healthcare system that will likely never be solved from within the system that exists now or from the infrastructure that funds it. In addition, he will discuss needed-but-absent roles in society that we must fill in order to see the progress we all want and desperately need. At the heart of his talk will be a discussion on how individuals, given the state of the world today, can best navigate their health regardless of where they sit on the health continuum.
