I had the pleasure to appear on the Dr. Oz Show.Dr. Oz has been a quick media success in the short time he has been on the air.A Harvard-trained physician he has been able to achieve something that mosthealth professionals have not had much luck doing – engaging the consumer onhealth.
How? Facts? Fear? Perhaps some of those.But, the secret sauce appears to be adding something else – fun. When was the lasttime you heard ‘fun’ and health in the same sentence? Clinicians, public andprivate insurers and most employers have tried to engage the public on wellnessbehaviors, chronic disease management, good nutrition, and exercise and havehad mixed results.
