  Community Voices - Dr. John Dreyzehner  
(Special Event)

Dr. John Dreyzehner, Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Health and Chair of the Advisory Committee for the Virginia Tech-Carilion School of Medicine's Master of Public Health Degree Program, will present "Moving from Healthcare to Health: Back to the Future with Primary Prevention." His talk focuses on the importance of effective prevention. He challenges policy makers, health care practitioners, and citizens to consider how nearly forty percent of the factors that shorten our lives are behaviors that we can modify. Building on this reality, he argues for a radical increase in emphasis on primary prevention. He urges widespread education, involvement and advocacy around these concerns since the health care sector cannot, and in some cases will not, make these changes alone. Instead he calls for widespread systemic change, grounded in broader social and cultural support.
