Session 5: Theo Edmonds and Ben Reno-Weber present “Community, Connection, and the Economics of Population Health”

Theo Edmonds (Chief Imaginator & Co-founder, IDEAS xLab) and Ben Reno-Weber (Chief Storyteller, MobileServe) will investigate how approaching health from a systems or population perspective makes sense financially. They will delve into the idea of fundamentally altering health outcomes through a community perspective that considers characteristics outside of symptoms, such as the assessment of social determinants. In addition, they will examine Louisville’s unique selling opportunity as America’s learning lab in the aging care space, and methods to get where we want to be.
