Reactive behavior affects many aspects of our lives, including health care. During day three of ECHO, participants were able to explore the healthcare community and how it has been effectively experimenting with behavioral change for individuals, corporations, and communities.

Speakers included Dr. Lydia Cook from Summa Health, Dr. Kim Cook from Akron Zoo, and Dr. Brent Pawlecki from Goodyear. Our speakers shared challenges and bright spots from their work to help us shift from reactive conservation to preventive planetary wellness.
