Moving out of your Zip Code: A Deeper Dive into Health Equity

Roundtable Discussion Health Equity

Our CEO David Paragamian moderated a discussion at the recent Digital Innovation Week between our SVP/Chief Content Officer, Maria Lissandrello, and Duke University’s, Julius Wilder, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, as they discussed why the most important number that determines a patient’s long term health outcome is NOT their weight, their BMI, their HBa1c – it is their zip code. The premise that demographics are destiny. Perhaps true enough but we believe it goes deeper into the need for understanding all the socio-economic, and cultural issues for individual patients – because that is what they are – individuals not an aggregate zip code cohort.
