The Wellness Paradox
The Role of Medical Fitness in a Post-COVID World w/David Flench

The Wellness Paradox

Play Episode Listen Later Nov 16, 2022 43:09


COVID dramatically impacted every aspect of our society, however healthcare was impacted more significantly than nearly any other sector. Healthcare is currently in a state of financial and operational disarray. Estimates from the American Hospital Association suggest that over 50% of hospital systems in the country will lose money this year. Healthcare executives (and the government) know the current economic equation is not sustainable. Costs are rising, imbursements are going down, and the American population is becoming more chronically diseased, which increases both human suffering and cost. This coexists with a greater level of public and government awareness around wellbeing and the role it plays in healthcare.Our guest in episode 80, David Flench, understands these coexisting factors well. David is the CEO & President of the Medical Fitness Association. He has spent nearly his entire professional career working and advancing the medical fitness model. As David points out in this conversation, medical fitness is not a health club business, it is a healthcare business (just like any other part of the healthcare system). The organization he leads is dedicated to the proliferation of the medical fitness model, to flip that cost equation on its head through focusing on lifestyle interventions as healthcare treatment modalities.What David and the Medical Fitness Association does is THE path to addressing the Wellness Paradox, in fact they are on that path right now. This conversation with David is a great look “under the hood” about the role medical fitness plays in the future of radically transforming healthcare and how you can get involved in that transformation.Show Notes Page: https://www.wellnessparadoxpod.com/podcast/episode/80 Our Guest: David Flench, MBA, FACHE, FMFA, ACSM-cEPDavid has more than 20 years of experience working in the health and wellness industry. Currently, he is the President and CEO of the Medical Fitness Association (MFA). Previously, Flench was the director of wellness centers and diabetes centers at healthcare facilities in Indiana and Florida. He obtained his Master of Business Administration from Franklin University in Columbus, Ohio and his Bachelor of Science with a concentration in Exercise Science from The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. He also has achieved a range of certifications including Six Sigma Green Belt, American College of Sports Medicine certified Exercise Physiologist (ACSM-EP) and ACSM Level 2 Exercise in Medicine, certified Health Care Manager by the Indiana Hospital Association, and board certified in Healthcare Management as a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), demonstrating that he is committed to furthering the medical fitness industry.

EA - Theories of Welfare and Welfare Range Estimates by Bob Fischer

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Theories of Welfare and Welfare Range Estimates, published by Bob Fischer on November 14, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. Key Takeaways Many theories of welfare imply that there are probably differences in animals' welfare ranges. However, these theories do not agree about the sizes of those differences. The Moral Weight Project assumes that hedonism is true. This post tries to estimate how different our welfare range estimates could be if we were to assume some other theory of welfare. We argue that even if hedonic goods and bads (i.e., pleasures and pains) aren't all of welfare, they're a lot of it. So, probably, the choice of a theory of welfare will only have a modest (less than 10x) impact on the differences we estimate between humans' and nonhumans' welfare ranges. Introduction This is the third post in the Moral Weight Project Sequence. The aim of the sequence is to provide an overview of the research that Rethink Priorities conducted between May 2021 and October 2022 on interspecific cause prioritization. The aim of this post is to suggest a way to quantify the impact of assuming hedonism on welfare range estimates. Motivations Theories of welfare disagree about the determinants of welfare. According to hedonism, the determinants of welfare are positively and negatively valenced experiences. According to desire satisfaction theory, the determinants are satisfied and frustrated desires. According to a garden variety objective list theory, the determinants are something like knowledge, developing and maintaining friendships, engaging in meaningful activities, and so on. Now, some animals probably have more intense pains than others; some probably have richer, more complex desires; some are able to acquire more sophisticated knowledge of the world; others can make stronger, more complex relationships with others. If animals systematically vary with respect to their ability to realize the determinants of welfare, then they probably vary in their welfare ranges. That is, some of them can probably realize more positive welfare at a time than others; likewise, some of them can probably realize more negative welfare at a time than others. As a result, animals probably vary with respect to the differences between the best and worst welfare states they can realize. The upshot: many theories of welfare imply that there are probably differences in animals' welfare ranges. However, theories of welfare do not obviously agree about the sizes of those differences. Consider a garden variety objective list theory on which the following things contribute positively to welfare: acting autonomously, gaining knowledge, having friends, being in a loving relationship, doing meaningful work, creating valuable institutions, experiencing pleasure, and so on. Now consider a simple version of hedonism (i.e., one that rejects the higher / lower pleasure distinction) on which just one thing contributes positively to welfare: experiencing pleasure. Presumably, while many nonhuman animals (henceforth, animals) can experience pleasure, they can't realize many of the other things that matter according to the objective list theory. Given as much, it's plausible that if the objective list theory is true, there will be larger differences in welfare ranges between many humans and animals than there will be if hedonism is true. For practical and theoretical reasons, the Moral Weight Project assumes that hedonism is true. On the practical side, we needed to make some assumptions to make any progress in the time we had available. On the theoretical side, there are powerful arguments for hedonism. Still, those who reject hedonism will rightly wonder about the impact of assuming hedonism. How different would our welfare range estimates be if we were to assume some other theory of welfare?

Take a deep dive into the issue of ocean plastics on this week's show as your host, Justin Mog, dips into the topic with Kathryn Anderson, Education Coordinator at the Ocean Legacy Foundation (http://oceanlegacy.ca), from Vancouver Island, BC. The Ocean Legacy Foundation is a Canadian non-profit organization that develops and implements worldwide plastic pollution emergency response programs, with the goal to end plastic pollution. They have just released an updated EPIC Academy, a free online platform providing global education on plastic pollution, cleanup efforts, and solutions for creating plastic pollution-free lands and waters. Check out their new curriculum on ocean plastics at https://edu.oceanlegacy.ca The source of plastic is finite and has potential for highly toxic production practices so it's critical to address the issue since the estimate is that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish! Estimates from National Geographic tell us that roughly 8-13 million metric tons of plastic enter the ocean annually (or about 5 grocery bags of plastic trash for every foot of coastline!). 91% of all plastic produced every year ends up in landfill, improperly incinerated or littered. You cannot see much of the problem because 99% of the plastic is actually found below the water's surface - found on every shore on earth (much in microplastic form that is far less obvious to the naked eye) all the way to Mariana Trench, the deepest known ocean trench - nearly 11,000m deep! The EPIC Academy curriculum aims to provide individuals, businesses and organizations interested in learning more about ocean plastic pollution with an easily accessible and free resource to start their learning journey, with the goal of building a global community working together to advance plastic pollution cleanup efforts, evidence-based policy expansion and infrastructure development to better manage plastic resources. Suitable for ages 14 and up, it includes 10 online lessons pertaining to ocean and land-based plastic pollution, the environmental impact of plastic pollution, and how different communities across the globe can take action managing plastic waste and solving the ocean plastic pollution crisis. The curriculum can be accessed in English, French and Spanish.

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: How bad could a war get?, published by Stephen Clare on November 4, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. Acknowledgements: Thanks to Joe Benton for research advice and Ben Harack and Max Daniel for feedback on earlier drafts. Author contributions: Stephen and Rani both did research for this post; Stephen wrote it and Rani gave comments and edits. Previously in this series: "Modelling great power conflict as an existential risk factor" and "How likely is World War III?" Introduction & Context In “How Likely is World War III?”, Stephen suggested the chance of an extinction-level war occurring sometime this century is just under 1%. This was a simple, rough estimate, made in the following steps: Assume that wars, i.e. conflicts that cause at least 1000 battle deaths, continue to break out at their historical average rate of one about every two years. Assume that the distribution of battle deaths in wars follows a power law. Use parameters for the power law distribution estimated by Bear Braumoeller in Only the Dead to calculate the chance that any given war escalates to 8 billion battle deaths Work out the likelihood of such a war given the expected number of wars between now and 2100. Not everybody was convinced. Arden Koehler of 80,000 Hours, for example, slammed it as “[overstating] the risk because it doesn't consider that wars would be unlikely to continue once 90% or more of the population has been killed.” While our friendship may never recover, I (Stephen) have to admit that some skepticism is justified. An extinction-level war would be 30-to-100 times larger than World War II, the most severe war humanity has experienced so far. Is it reasonable to just assume number go up? Would the same escalatory dynamics that shape smaller wars apply at this scale? Forecasting the likelihood of enormous wars is difficult. Stephen's extrapolatory approach creates estimates that are sensitive to the data included and the kind of distribution fit, particularly in the tails. But such efforts are important despite their defects. Estimates of the likelihood of major conflict are an important consideration for cause prioritization. And out-of-sample conflicts may account for most of the x-risk accounted for by global conflict. So in this post we interrogate two of the assumptions made in “How Likely is World War III?”: Does the distribution of battle deaths follow a power law? What do we know about the extreme tails of this distribution? Our findings are: That battle deaths per war are plausibly distributed according to a power law, but few analyses have compared the power law fit to the fit of other distributions. Plus, it's hard to say what the tails of the distribution look like beyond the wars we've experienced so far. To become more confident in the power law fit, and learn more about the tails, we have to consider theory: what drives war, and how might these factors change as wars get bigger? Perhaps some factors limit the size of war, such as increasing logistical complexity. One candidate for such a factor is technology. But while it seems plausible that in the past, humanity's war-making capacity was not sufficient to threaten extinction, this is no longer the case. This suggests that wars could get very, very bad: we shouldn't rule out the possibility that war could cause human extinction. Battle deaths and power laws Fitting power laws One way to gauge the probability of out-of-sample events is to find a probability distribution, a mathematical function which gives estimates for how likely different events are, which describes the available data. If we can find a well-fitting distribution, then we can use it to predict the likelihood of events larger than anything we've observed, but within the range of the function describing the distribution. Several researchers have...

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Quantifying the impact of grantmaking career paths, published by Joel Becker on October 30, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. How impactful is it to try to become a grantmaker focused on pressing world problems? Encouraged by Nuno's tweet, I spent a couple of hours trying to find out. TL;DR I estimate the expected x-risk basis points reduced for the prospective marginal grantmaker to be 0.12 (with enormous error bars and caveats). Background Epistemic status: I have zero grantmaking experience and haven't even double-checked my numbers; please do not use this post for anything that relies on it not containing serious errors. My estimand is something like: “expected x-risk basis points reduced for the prospective marginal grantmaker doing their best to benefit the most pressing problems at an Open Philanthropy-equivalent organization.” BOTEC Chance of getting a job I make guesses of the number of employers that might be possible to work at, the Open Philanthropy-equivalentness of employers, and the probability of acceptance for any particular job application. Multiplying these factors together gives me a probability of succeeding in getting an Open Philanthropy-equivalent grantmaking job offer at (at least) one of the Open Philanthropy-equivalent organizations of 7% (on average). Seems not-crazy. Impact from grantmaking I used recent data from these charts to guess the total longtermist grants given per year by Open Philanthropy-equivalent organizations going forwards. The fraction of grants a prospective grantmaker is responsible for is given by the reciprocal of my guess of the number of grantmaker-equivalents at Open Philanthropy-equivalent organizations. (I apologize for phrasing...) Only a fraction of the grants that a grantmaker is responsible for can be counterfactually attributed to them — some grants would make for such obvious decisions that the counterfactual grantmaker would have acted identically. I convert the vibes from this post into a fraction of grants worth deliberating over (on average, 13%). I set the ratio of skill vs. a replacement grantmaker to be mean 1.2 with mass either side of 1. This reflects the fact grantmakers may be better or worse than their counterfactual replacement, but also that on average their being hired implies that they are expected to perform better. Taken together, I get a mean estimate of $5.7m for the Open Philanthropy-equivalent resources counterfactually moved by grantmaking activities of the prospective marginal grantmaker, conditional on job offer. Impact from other paths Linch claims that some fraction of grantmakers' impact comes from things that look like ‘improving all grantmaking processes at their organization,' ‘improving the work/selection of their grantees,' and other paths that I did not attempt to categorize. I add the categorized paths in to my estimate of impact. My mean estimate for the Open Philanthropy-equivalent impact from non-grantmaking activities sums to around $30m (equivalent). ~70% of this comes from improving all grantmaking, ~30% from improving grantees. Units In order to calculate impact for the whole career path, I multiply annual impact by the number of years employed as a grantmaker. Finally, to convert impact into terms of x-risk basis points, I divide by USD per x-risk basis point. Estimates for this quantity come from this comment. Putting everything together All considered, I get an estimate of the x-risk basis points reduced by the prospective marginal grantmaker of 0.12 in expectation. There is a ~27% chance of having a negative counterfactual impact (vs. replacement grantmaker) and a ~5% chance of having an impact greater than expected. For full details, see my code in the appendix. Limitations There might be over- or under-counting issues. For instance, I guess that the averag...

Following last week's debate, Squirrel and Jeffrey share their different takes on the value of having estimated a tech team's planned work when it comes to a retrospective at the end of a cycle, like a sprint or a quarter: Jeffrey sees that checking what the team achieved against what they planned can lead to important lessons about dependencies, inefficiencies, and skills gaps, while Squirrel thinks the risk of the estimates "escaping" is too high, and that the team ought to be able to notice process failings as they go without the "crutch" of estimates.

SF Giants' arbitration estimates can help us predict their offseason spending

The San Francisco Giants' spending is always a hot topic around these parts every offseason. That conversation may be louder than ever before this winter, with the SF Giants coming off a very disappointing 81-81 record after they won 107 games in 2021. The fanbase is restless, the payroll has been stagnant, and there are stars available for the Giants to sign, if only they were willing to do so. Understanding where the Giants stand from a payroll perspective is important if we wish to predict what they will be able to spend this offseason. The Giants have relatively few commitments to 2023 salaries. They owe $73 million to eight players, not including the $22.5M Carlos Rodón will undoubtedly opt out of. That also includes the $5M buyout on the Giants' $13M club option over Evan Longoria. The SF Giants' arbitration estimates, per MLB Trade Rumors, are for $33.3M going to 13 players. The Giants will have the power to negotiate these salaries, and they are not committed to paying any of them if they'd prefer to non-tender any arbitration-eligible player. Add it all up, and the San Francisco Giants are looking at roughly $106 million going to 21 players. This does not include any pre-arbitration estimates for the Giants. And again, they can non-tender any arbitration-eligible player and won't be obligated to pay a dime. But this is a good rough starting point. And what it means for the Giants, in terms of offseason spending, is that they'd have about $56M to spend on 2023 salaries just to get back to their extremely modest range of about $162M, where they've been each of the last few years. So you could essentially sign a couple of $30M per year players and still come in with a very modest payroll. Hopefully the Giants increase payroll this year, but they're starting from a very flexible position and a big offseason for the Giants is more than possible.

While the pandemic may have shielded healthcare providers from intrusive recoupment audits, the auditing break was but temporary. Starting in August of 2021, UPIC, TPE, RAC and other audits started back up and the contractors had a lot of catching up to do.

Estimates suggest that the planet's average temperature could rise by up to four degrees Celsius. From heatwaves and hurricanes to flooding and droughts, the extreme weather this would bring could render certain parts of our planet unliveable. Changes on this scale may leave many people with no other option but to migrate to more liveable parts of the planet. Those who do migrate may have to navigate national borders and a public image that paints migration as a problem that needs to be solved. If mass migration is to be an inevitable part of our future, how can we more proactively approach the scale of the challenge and view it as a key solution to climate-related threats? How can we ensure people driven to migration have agency over their experience and ensure that we build a future that does not exaggerate existing social inequalities?Here, Gaia Vince will set out her manifesto for this era of planetary change. After outlining likely futures for our planet and the changes this will require from countries, communities and cities, Gaia will explore key questions that will shape the future of human geography and explain how we should see these changes as key solutions to build a better, greener and fairer future.#RSAclimatemigrationBecome an RSA Events sponsor: https://utm.guru/ueembDonate to The RSA: https://utm.guru/udNNBFollow RSA Events on Instagram: https://instagram.com/rsa_events/Follow the RSA on Twitter: https://twitter.com/RSAEventsLike RSA Events on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/rsaeventsoff...

He meets a farmer and dung beetle expert, who shows him how the drugs found in flea treatments and worming pills can leach out into nature.
