E92: Liz Markle of Open Source Wellness - Community is Medicine
Show Notes

Liz Markle PhD believes innovation in health and wellness isn't a new pill or superfood or wearable but a return to the universally applicable and radically simple advice to move, nourish, connect, and be. Tired of patients not making progress in between doctor visits, Liz wanted to make it easier for people to design their lives so that healthy behaviors were the default. Enter Open Source Wellness, a "behavioral pharmacy" that is high-touch and powered by connection, leading to health transformation.
