In this episode of NOTeD, I had a distinct pleasure of interviewing the founder of the platform in which NOTeD lives, the True Health Initiative’s founder, Dr David Katz.
Dr. Katz is, without question, one of the top leaders and pioneers in nutrition, lifestyle as medicine and, recently, the discussion surrounding best approach is to minimize harm as it relates to managing the COVID pandemic.
Multiple time best-selling author, Dr. Katz earned his BA degree from Dartmouth College in 1984, MD from the Albert Einstein College of medicine in 1988 and a Masters in Public Health from the Yale University School of Public health in 1993. He then completed sequential residency training in internal medicine as well as preventive medicine/public health, ultimately becoming the president of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine and founding director of the Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center, which he has recently left after two decades of leadership to pursue leading his company, Diet ID, as it’s a full-time CEO.
While Dr. Katz does not shy away from his politics being more on the left side of the spectrum, above all else, he is a humanist.
When it came to making the case for a total harm minimization approach to managing the pandemic, he did not – unlike other “experts“ – shy away from discussing with anyone on either side of the spectrum. From the left he is appeared on the Bill Maher show, and on the right he made his case for risk based protection on the Mark Levin show.
David gives us his thoughts on why the THI is so sorely needed now, and a time of information overload and a cacophony of confusion when it comes to nutrition and lifestyle and of course the pandemic).
David gives us his thoughts on why the THI is so sorely needed now, at a time of information overload and a cacophony of confusion when it comes to nutrition and lifestyle (and of course the pandemic). And he even gives us a number of very touching personal insights into his personal life as well, one’s you won’t hear anywhere else but right here, on NOTeD.
So please enjoy the video and allow me to introduce you to the preeminent Dr David Katz.
