Episode 494 Empowering Wellness

Craig Stephen is a public health professor and One Health expert who began as a veterinarian. Nowadays he teaches by telling stories that show the connections between the narrow medical problem and the environment or social circumstances that are involved. Often, he says, by reducing the risks of the undesirable behavior (eg. drug use), we empower people to see options that are available that allow them to abandon the bad behavior, whereas we would fail completely if we just told addicts at the outset to stop using drugs. We discuss whether it is better to approach problems locally or globally. For the video, audio podcast, transcript and comments: https://tosavetheworld.ca/episode-494-empowering-wellness.
