Did you miss Rebecca Onie’s talk at TEDMED last month? We’re happy to announce the video of her speech, “Can We Rewrite the DNA of the Health Care System”, is available below.

In Rebecca’s talk, she asserts that healthcare, like any other system, is a set of choices people make. She asks, “What if we decided to make different choices, to make this system what it was meant to be?”

Whether you’re watching her talk for the first or fifth time, we invite you to share in our vision for a healthcare system that addresses all patients’ basic resource needs as a standard part of quality care. Health Leads’ mission is to catalyze this healthcare system by connecting patients with the basic resources they need to be healthy, and in doing so, build leaders with the conviction and ability to champion quality care for all patients.

I believe we all have a vision for our healthcare. And I believe that, at the end of the day, we will measure our healthcare not by how many diseases we cured, but by how many diseases we prevented.
