THE TALK: Actual Health

September 22, 2022


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 mindsets on how to increase one’s level of health in today’s world. His talk covers major gaps in the standard approach to healthcare and details why he believes the solution is unlikely to come from within the system itself. He will detail the needed-but-absent roles in society that he believes must be filled to see the progress in overall quality of health and wellness in the public at large. The talk concludes with a discussion on how individuals can best navigate their health regardless of where they currently sit on the health continuum.
