TED: Rishi Manchanda: What makes us get sick? Look upstream. - Rishi Manchanda (2014)

September 15th, 2014

Episode 87 of 791 episodes

Rishi Manchanda has worked as a doctor in South Central Los Angeles for a decade, where he’s come to realize: His job isn’t just about treating a patient’s symptoms, but about getting to the root cause of what is making them ill—the “upstream" factors like a poor diet, a stressful job, a lack of fresh air. It’s a powerful call for doctors to pay attention to a patient's life outside the exam room.
