David Nash: Moving Population Health Into the Mainstream
JULY 26, 2016
There may not be a lot known about population medicine across the medical community but those involved believe as more is known about the specialty the more benefit it can provide for doctors and patients alike.
As the dean of one of the first schools of population medicine David B. Nash, MD, MBA, from Thomas Jefferson University has seen the growth of the field firsthand and said that growth can continue to influence not only the lives of patients but the doctors that treat them as well. With much of the population across the United States having unhealthy habits as part of their daily lives Nash said it is important to address the whole person's life instead of only focusing on conditions they have developed or may develop in the future.Â
