If you or someone you know is living with a chronic illness, it can feel like you never get a break. You have to track medications and monitor your symptoms, constantly worrying what will happen if you’re alone when a health crisis hits. There is, however, a platform that is working to change all this. Livongo Health is a company with a solution designed to empower people with chronic conditions, so they can live healthier and better lives. In this episode of HealthChangers, we have a conversation with Livongo Health's CEO Glen Tullman and ask him what the inspiration was behind Livongo, a company committed to helping people with chronic conditions and also an investment company of Echo Health Ventures.

October 27th is National Prescription Drug Take Back  .  Turning in old medications ensures they’re disposed of properly, but take back events can also prevent drug addiction and overdoses. The 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health found a majority of abused prescription drugs came from family and friends’ medicine cabinets. 

In this episode of HealthChangers, we’re taking a closer look at opioid abuse and the family and community work it takes to deal with this national crisis. Dr. Jim Polo, Behavioral Health Medical Director at Cambia moderated with a discussion at the Cambia Grove, a health care innovation in Seattle, and spoke with folks who’ve experienced opioid addiction, and recovery, first hand. Two regional experts, who are working directly with populations impacted by the opioid crisis, participated in the Conversation.
