When Eric Durak started his career in wellness he wanted to put his talents and many passions to work linking wellness with the health care community. With his foundation in kinesiology, public health and medical research, he decided that comprehensive education programs were his contribution to the profession. His work in health, safety and preventive medicine have all been incorporated into the latest versions of the MedhealthFit certification programs.
Now, after more than 25 years in healthcare, research, wellness, and continuing education, Eric is still testing the limits of the wellness industry by forming new partnerships and alliances and has developed the next generation of exercise-health and wellness education tools.
This includes his venture in to population health management - which he has been involved with as an industry leader since the early 1990s. In today's wellness climate - the best way to work in healthcare is to understand how data will work to your advantage.
As a medical researcher and industry thought leader for over three decades, Eric has positioned Medhealthfit to help health centers use their existing data to reach new medical and performance markets.
