Introduction Dr Melissa Clarke, a physician for over 20 years, understands health from many perspectives – as a emergency room doctor, patient advocate, medical school dean, acupuncturist, population health expert, and patient herself. So she knows the challenges that most people face as they try to understand their own health and interact with our healthcare system. These challenges can include everything from choosing the right practitioner, to understanding what insurance will pay for, to knowing what are safe and effective complimentary therapies; and at the same time, trying to be on top of your health conditions, medications, lifestyle changes needed…the list goes on. Dr Clarke tackles issues that can help you be informed as you chart your own path to your best health.
