A key Global Wellness Institute (GWI) program, The Wellness Moonshot: A World Free of Preventable Disease was created to be a powerful, collaborative force to educate people about prevention and inspire them to take control of their health. Prevention is no longer optional to global wellness—it is mission-critical. Lifestyle-related diseases and the continuously skyrocketing cost of healthcare are creating a global crisis that is affecting us both physically and mentally. The stark reality is that roughly 70% of all deaths each year are a result of preventable diseases (CDC), while the global cost of largely preventable chronic disease could reach $47 trillion by 2030, according to the World Economic Forum.
“The time has come to pool our resources—knowledge, access, funding—and use our collective megaphone on the world stage to work towards achieving a world free of preventable disease,” said Susie Ellis, GWI Chairman and CEO. “Unlike President Kennedy’s famous moonshot to send a man to the moon, where it was clear when the ‘mission was accomplished’ – this moonshot will require not one, but many incremental steps forward for humankind.”
Fountain Life, whose mission is to change healthcare from reactive to preventive, will be the exclusive 2023 sponsor of GWI’s Wellness Moonshot campaign to create a world free of preventable disease. The GWI will work closely with Fountain Life’s executive team–which includes renowned medical leaders and entrepreneurs Dr. Robert Harari, Dr. Bill Kapp, Dr. Rakesh Suri, Dr. Peter Diamandis and Tony Robbins–to create programs that can meaningfully impact behavior change worldwide.
Join us on this mission. Your involvement at any level is critical.
