Why We Need a New Model for 21st Century Healthcare… A Conversation with Dr David Peters

The neatness of medical science is unravelling. Nineteenth century medical science produced categories of disease ordered by cellular pathology and germ theory; 20th century medicine focused the analytic-mechanical model on smaller and smaller parts with astonishing success. Its obvious triumphs include infections, deficiency diseases, surgical excisions and transplants, intensive care and anaesthetics.

This webinar took place June 8, 2021. Here is the recorded event.

But 21st century medicine is confronted with whole person problems: chronic degenerative and inflammatory diseases, stress-, environment- and lifestyle-mediated diseases, addictions and psychological disorders.

Join me for a compelling afternoon session on Tuesday June 8th, with a dear friend and colleague of mine, Dr David Peters, Professor of Integrated Healthcare, University of Westminster in London, UK.

I have known David for close to 15 years and have had the privilege of working with him on numerous programs in the UK and Europe during my years in the HeartMath organization. He is truly a holistic thinker who has dedicated himself to the transformation of health care not only in his native UK, but also globally. Our conversation will be interesting, spirited, inspired and at times playful.
