This week’s podcast features Dr. Mohan-pal Singh Chandan, a GP working within the NHS who we met at the Prescribing Lifestyle Medicine Conference this year.

Dr. Chandan has garnered government support to start up a community-based lifestyle medicine clinic in a poor area of inner city Birmingham, UK.

By supporting lifestyle interventions and incentivizing peer-to-peer medicine, they’ve not only seen a dramatic reduction in medical visits and pharmaceutical use, but also remissions of so-called chronic conditions throughout their pilot program.

Tune in today to see the dramatic power of lifestyle community interventions for improving patient outcomes, including:

  • A summary of pilot program data, like how patient empowerment led to a 20% reduction in GP visits, a 10% reduction in prescription costs and a variety of positive health outcomes for Birmingham residents

  • The special role faith-based communities play in community-based healthcare, and how those qualities can translate to any community
  • Details on how we plan to use kNew Health Cooperative to bring medicine back into communities, re-empower patients and achieve these same types of results in the United States
