Health care in the United States is complex, hard to navigate and doesn’t always work the way it should. The good news: So much has changed over the last few years. Leaders inside and outside of the health industry are rethinking how to deliver care and support to meet all people where they’re at. When it comes to your health, everything is connected. So, taking better care of it needs to go beyond the physical to include mental, emotional, social and spiritual health. And to look at the full picture, health care needs to give more consideration to where you are born, live, learn and work, too. In Season 3 of “Until It’s Fixed,” we’ll talk with thought leaders and advocates working to solve the health industry’s biggest challenges — as well as personal stories from people who live with these issues every day. We’ll have deep conversations about opportunities to make the current system work better for everyone, including talking more openly about the role that gender, sexual orientation, race, income and other areas of your life play in accessing and receiving health care. This is where change starts. Join us on the inspiring journey to create a healthier world — and make health care simpler and more effective for everyone.
