Coffee with Cassandra: Seeking prevention through community well-being

Before you start your workday, enjoy your morning coffee with brew from Methodist Healthcare Ministries. This is your daily dose of stories that speak to the heart of our organization, paired with your favorite cup of joe!

Today we dive into an article recently published on Methodist Healthcare Ministries’ blog which explores the idea of looking upstream, an approach to address the root causes that create suffering.

I am happy to sit down with Tim Barr, our collective impact strategy manager and author of, “Looking upstream: Seeking prevention through community well-being.” Tim provides a passionate explanation about why those concerned about health should look beyond treating people when they are sick and instead look upstream to explore why they are getting sick.
