Harnessing Community: Living better together
Show Notes

One of the greatest anchors for our health is joy and human connection. In this episode, we focus on the lessons we can learn from communities who have supported better health and happiness for their members. Rhea shares leadership lessons from her experiences co-founding Reset: a community designed to inspire us to digitally disconnect to reconnect with ourselves. Gina shares insights into how The On Canada Project’s emphasis on community has powered their organic growth to over 100k Instagram followers in 1 year. We also pull in insights from our interview with Andrea Syrtash, who launched Pregnantish after her own pregnancy struggles. Pregnantish is now building community-driven programs to help doctors better serve their patients. Finally, we tackle how digital apps can further empower patient communities drawing on our learnings from building our app, Better By Bowhead. We end with a meditation to help all of us connect to the healing power of community. We especially want to support innovators --- doctors, technologists, systems leaders --- move from head to heart and bring more community values into how we design healthcare today.  Join our futures community to keep learning with us!
