Health Care Re-imagined

Let's make caring for one another our greatest ambition.

Our Story

We are people impacted by a health issue, professionals and wellness enthusiasts actualizing a new vision for what we can become when health care is deeply humanized.

Health is a fundamental expression of our humanity and the foundation of a life well lived. Too much of our health care experience overlooks this shared truth in how it approaches care.

The People Before Patients movement is re-imagining how health and care co-exist in better balance.

Grace’s mind is changing. Her family are the guardians of her cherished memories, caring for her as she ages with dignity.
