Rishi Manchanda, MD, MPH

Estes Park Institute Guest

Presented at 2017 San Francisco Conference

Rishi Manchanda, MD, MPH, a physician and public health innovator, presents his important “upstream medicine” message which aims to reinvigorate primary care by teaching doctors to think about—and treat—the social and environmental conditions that often underlie sickness.

Dr. Manchanda is a physician leader, health system innovator, and author.  He is President of HealthBegins, a social enterprise that provides health care professionals with tools and support to improve care and the social factors that make people sick in the first place.
