“What I Will Take With Me”

Dartmouth Health Connect, an Iora Health practice serving employees and family members of Dartmouth College, New England Carpenters Union, and King Arthur Flour, recently received a note from a patient who unfortunately was leaving the practice due to a life change. In her note, this patient described what she will be taking with her as a result of being cared for by the team at Dartmouth Health Connect:

“What I Will Take With Me

  1. I am primarily responsible for my own health with the help of a physician/Health Coach, etc. (collaborators)
  2. Mindfulness is key to addressing/mitigating health issues
  3. Sharing challenges to health issues and weight loss is helpful
  4. If you are sick, believe that you can get better and ask for help quickly
  5. Healthcare is a loving endeavor
  6. The Iora Health care model works”

This letter iterates why the Iora Health care model was created in the first place. We aim to meet people where they are so they can become advocates for themselves in their personal health journey.
