Managing health extends beyond hospital doors. In an age where technology innovations are king, providers and patients are all asking the same question, "Why is this so hard!?". Until it's Fixed tackles the current problems, tough questions and highlights how health care technology is reshaping the health care system.
What Makes You Healthy
Studies suggest that the medical care we get only determines about 20% of our health. Among what has a bigger influence includes our family history, daily choices, the thoughts and emotions you feel and where you live and work. Maria Menounos, entertainment reporter, actress and host of the "Better Together with Maria Menounos" podcast, joins our season finale to talk about how she approaches health and how we can all take the reins when it comes to our own health journey.
Reflections and Hope
Bringing in a new year offers a time to pause and think about things in our life—and sometimes includes making a resolution or two for change. Join hosts Stacey Dove and Callie Chamberlain for a reflection on topics that have cropped up time and again throughout the second season of Until It's Fixed. Revisit fan-favorite conversations and stories on changing health care to be more personal, connected and equitable—and what can give all of us hope for the future.
Technology and our increased access to information has transformed our lives and changed our expectations for how we communicate, learn, travel, shop and more. Now it's health care's turn. Dr. Kate Wolin, health and lifestyle behavior expert and Optum Store leader joins host Stacey Dove for a discussion on building a more people-centered health care system. What does that mean, where do we start, and what does the future hold for meeting each person’s needs?
Screening and Survival
New approaches to care and therapies available today are changing how we can treat and survive cancer – which is good news when you consider that nearly 40% of men and women will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime. One of the best tools is routine screening because it can help find cancer early, when care might work best. Hosts Callie Chamberlain and Stacey Dove are joined by cancer rebel, Matthew Zachary, and Stand Up To Cancer CEO, Dr. Sung Poblete, to talk about progress in cancer research and screening and the role each of us can play in taking a healthy stand against cancer.
Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States—and it disproportionately affects people who are vulnerable. In this episode of Until It's Fixed, host Callie Chamberlain sits down with expert guests Etta Short and Dr. Kelly Carpenter to talk about innovations happening in tobacco cessation programs, and how making changing in other areas of our health can help our efforts to quit.
DNA, Personalized Medicine and…Zebras?
Two people have a similar condition—one responds to treatment, and the other doesn’t. Why? The answer might be in their DNA. In this episode of Until It’s Fixed, we learn about clinicogenomics—the combination of data about your genetic code and your interactions with the health system—and how it can shape how we treat everything from ultra-rare diseases to the most prevalent cancers. We’re joined by Allison Pullins, a rare disease parent and advocate, and Drs. Ashley Brenton and Alex Liede.
