Dan Pardi

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 actually means and novel mind frames on how to increase one’s level of health in today’s world. In this talk, he will cover major gaps in the standard modern approach to healthcare and detail why he believes the solution will likely never be solved from within the system itself. He will also detail 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 currently sit on the health continuum.
