Travis Stork, M.D., is passionate about enlightening individuals on simple, impactful ways to maximize their health and happiness. When it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and encouraging others to do the same, Stork walks the walk. He went on a solo bike ride across the country to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis the year before he entered medical school and to this day, he rides his bike every day to work, rain or shine. Dr. Stork is able to connect to audiences using his unique perspective and experiences as an ER doctor and television host. In his informative and compelling presentations, Stork blends scholarly intelligence with Midwestern charm as he explores complex subjects in an accessible way with your audience. He takes great pride[SC1] in teaching attendees how to avoid preventable illness because as he says, “Good health doesn’t happen at the doctor’s office, it happens in between those visits.”  Most people don’t realize that they make 200-plus decisions every day that dictate how well and how long we live. Dr. Stork learned this lesson himself when after years of neglecting his posture and spine health and dealing with pinched nerve issues in his neck, he had multiple procedures and ultimately surgery on his spine. He now includes his own experiences in the health care system as part of his presentations.  Dr. Stork is the #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Lose Your Belly Diet, The Doctor’s Diet, The Doctor’s Diet Cookbook, The Lean Belly Prescription and The Doctor Is In: A 7-Step Prescription for Optimal Wellness. He also serves on the medical advisory board for Men’s Health magazine and is a member of the “Health Squad” for People Magazine.

The confusion surrounding marijuana, medical marijuana, THC, and CBD is astounding – especially when it comes to the practice of medicine and health benefits for patients.

CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is the non-psychoactive element of marijuana. It’s getting a lot of press these days – and for good reason, says Dr. Travis Stork.

Patient Advocacy In the New World of Healthcare

Never before has there been so much public awareness about the expanding role of patient advocacy.

New federal regulations empower patients to be active partners in their care – by encouraging more education, transparency, and involvement in selecting health care options that are the best fit.

But the proper culture in hospitals and doctors’ offices is essential to making it work. Everyone must truly see patients as a partner with their organization and in their care.

A fervent believer in helping patients feel empowered when it comes to their health, Dr. Travis Stork is passionate about enlightening individuals – and healthcare practitioners – about ways they can advocate for proper care. In this engaging talk, he shares innovative ways to grow patient advocacy, tips to ensure patient-focused care, collaboration tactics that bridge the divide between all parties involved, and more.
