As a physician, advocate and patient, Dr. Aaron Leppin has dedicated his career to transforming the health care system from one that focuses on sick care exclusively, to one that also promotes wellness. A critical component of well care is building communities’ capacity to deliver and scale evidence-based health promotion programs that improve the lives of older adults, advance population health and save costs. Dr. Leppin discussed strategies for community integrated health care, effective messaging for health care providers to understand and embrace EBPs, and the increasing role that social determinants of health play in well care.

This presentation was featured at the 2018 National Center for Healthy Aging Annual Meeting.
