A "health coach" is just what it sounds like — a coach who’s there to help patients manage a problem, or make changes to their lifestyle. And thousands. On this episode, you'll hear from two.

First, Michele Geraldi — a coach for Omada Health, which specializes in diabetes prevention — explains how she works to convince patients to be healthier.

Then Ruth Wolever, who runs Vanderbilt's health coaching program and cofounded an international consortium to make coaching better, explains how health coaches fit into value-based care and where she thinks the industry is heading.
