dr_jandel_allen-davis-hi resThink of the ideal place to build a life for you and your loved ones. What impact does this setting have on your health? Health is so much more than the absence of illness. Join us as we widen the aperture and examine health and health care through unexplored landscapes. Let’s explore how we might thrive in all the places we live, learn, work, play and pray.

As a health maven and speaker, Dr. Jandel Allen-Davis’ talk at TEDxMileHigh on the shortcomings of a broken healthcare system has been viewed thousands of times. Her talks on dense and complicated subjects such as health care, or personal subjects such as wellness, are charismatic, creative and impactful. Now, Dr. Allen-Davis has sifted through the misleading ideas of what we all believe to define a healthy life while going beyond stereotypical ideals to expose the undiscovered elements of how to truly thrive in the modern landscape of life.

Dr. Allen-Davis is vice president of Government, External Relations and Research for Kaiser Permanente Colorado. She served on the Colorado State Board of Medical Examiners from 2003–2011 and served as president of the board from 2009–2011.
