Lower your stress! Exercise! Eat your veggies!

We want to live healthier lifestyles, but somehow we just can't do it. Changing our health behavior is very hard to do. To overcome this difficulty, Engaged Health Solutions was founded to advise, educate, and coach individuals to live a healthier lifestyle, when they just can't do it on their own. In addition to changing individual behaviors, they are convincing large organizations to re-evaluate benefits supplied to their employees.

Levy and Harper's talk will cover:

- A brief history of traditional health care and the current problem
- How to initiate change for yourself
- How to initiate change in others
- Tools and metrics used to measure behavior changes

Will co-founded Engaged Health Solutions with fellow physician Ari Levy. They practiced medicine at University of Chicago's Program for Personalized Health & Prevention (PPHP), and together, created a team-based approach to providing care. Using this concept, they saw that with support, education and guidance, people have a great capacity for change. Will and Ari founded EHS to bring that high-level of personalized care to employee populations.

Will also brings to EHS significant experience in the academic arena, where he was a national leader in medical education and health literacy at the University of Chicago. He is medical director and sees patients on a limited basis in the PPHP and serves as lead team internal medicine physician for the Chicago Blackhawks.
