Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® Discusses Options for Community Behavioral Health with Open Source Wellness

Los Angeles, CA – January 22, 2019 — Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® is pleased to announce an exclusive interview with Dr. Elizabeth Markle and Dr. Benjamin Emmert-Aronson, Co-Founders of Open Source Wellness to discuss how they are reshaping the way healthcare and communities approach behavioral health.

Open Source Wellness is the behavioral equivalent of a pharmacy; a delivery system for the basic behaviors that drive human health and wellbeing: Physical Activity, Healthy Meals, Stress Reduction, and Social Connection.

“I’m a psychologist by training,” says Markle. “I spent many years working in healthcare, supporting patients and doctors. I found that, across patient diagnoses and across provider specialties, doctors are making the same four behavioral prescriptions: ‘Exercise more!’  ‘Eat better!’  ‘Reduce your stress!’ and ‘Get some social support!’ And then they unfortunately have to say, ‘Good luck with that, we’ll see you in six months,’ because there is no democratized delivery system for that kind of prescription. We need to create new structures of social support that can help us live healthy and well together.”

“We found that we are able to reliably reduce depression by 30 to 50 percent, and blood pressure scores between 10 and 20 points,” says Emmert-Aronson. “We’re finding outcomes that meet or exceed what we see in a classic medical setting, and at a lower price.”

“Although it may sound unconventional, there is a dire need for alternatives other than individuals always taking medication,” says J.L. Haber, Vice President of Programming for Worldwide Business. “What they are doing at Open Source Wellness is changing the game for healthier and happier lives within health-based communities that make the difference.”
