Hi all,

Happy new year!

Has anyone or is anyone working on or know anyone working in the prevention,
prediction and wellness space? If so, I'd like to connect.

Thanks much - Christine

Can you define "prevention, prediction, wellness"? I do work in the
healthcare space, but I don't know if what I do fits what you are looking to
find out.

Thanks,
David

I guess I was trying to keep it broad so as to include any interesting tools, models, sites, etc. anyone may have come across lately worth mentioning.

Good morning!

Thanks to those that responded to me offline and I'm sorry I have been so
nebulous however I wanted to see what - anything - that would come back
with such a broad, undefined question.

I work for the Innovation Center at the Mayo Clinic and also as a researcher
on various clinical trials. I am very active in the prevention and
prediction space i.e. how can we study the use of prevention and prediction
tools and then develop better or entirely different tools that
enable patients, providers and the larger community to understand risk and
actively participate in their healthcare.

We have a number of prototypes up and running in various areas, the most
interesting in genomic testing and family history. I'd be interested in work
that has been done in this area in the past - these do NOT have to be
healthcare related necessarily. These could be risk/prediction models of any
kind and any research or first-hand knowledge that has been successful or
not in the past.

Thanks again!
Christine

This might be off on somewhat of a tangent, but there are tools to indicate
risk, but then there are all the cognitive biases that affect how people
perceive risk in the social and cognitive psychology. The work of Tversky
and Kahneman and others on biases like the salience bias where perceptions
of risk are influenced by the salience of related events. For example, a
person who just had someone die from a medical condition is likely to view
risk differently.
I'm not near my references now, but if this seems relevant, I can provide
some more detailed references.

Good topic and interesting research.

Thanks Chauncey - I'll take anything you've got! :)

Interestingly, having observed work on and having been involved with
numerous clinical trials now, I have seen that people often do not react in
the way we might expect and their perceptions can be very different as well
even in cases where a trial has gone very wrong - where there have been
deaths and the trial has been stopped. In the case of one such situation,
people in the "trial gone wrong" signed up for a similar trial a few months
later despite their experience with fellow trial members passing away in the
first trial. They did not place blame on the investigators and staff and
retained a good relationship with both. So it is possible they did indeed
understand the risk at the onset of the trial and/or they formed such a bond
with the trial team and their fellow trial members that they were willing to
risk and put their personal concerns aside (why, we do not yet fully
understand).

Thanks for asking the question, David :)

I spent a couple of years in the health space myself - I think Christine
might be using wellness in the holistic health/preventative medicine sense.

Cheers, Andrew
