 “Attendees will gain a better understanding of the unsustainability of our current health care system, that collaboration among formerly competing factions will be required to make a difference, and that the new health care model will be as much based on prevention as cure,” Dr. Skisak shared. ” This is my first Summit so I am excited to meet new colleagues and share the passion that I have for the PIECES model of total wellbeing that include Physical, Intellectual, Emotional, Community, Economic and Spiritual elements.”
