"We must redefine how we practice medicine in the 21st Century in order to meet the needs of a changing healthcare landscape"
Dr. Stancic advocates for change in healthcare and is an executive producer of code blue, a feature length documentary that reveals insufficiencies in the current state of medicine and provides a common sense solution by featuring the practice of lifestyle medicine to prevent, treat, and manage disease.
Dr. Stancic is a board certified physician and the founder of Stancic Health and Wellness, LLC in Ramsey, NJ, an innovative medical practice whose mission is to educate and empower patients to achieve optimal health via lifestyle modification.
Her focus is shedding light on the building body of scientific evidence supporting the importance of optimal nutrition and lifestyle in disease prevention. The concept for this practice came in response to her experiences as a physician for over 20 years and as a patient with multiple sclerosis.
In 2018, she was appointed Chief Medical Officer for WellStart Health, a digital, team-based intensive lifestyle change program. She seeks to spread the power of lifestyle medicine on a global scale, and bring needed change to how we train physicians.
THE POWER OF LIFESTYLE MEDICINE
The ever growing epidemic of chronic disease in the U.S. is quickly becoming unsustainable. Total healthcare costs in the U.S. have now surpassed 3 trillion dollars per year. The healthcare system is trying- and failing- to keep pace with an ever sicker population, a population unaware of how its lifestyle choices are contributing to this alarming trend of chronic illness.
In the forefront of this revolutionary movement is Dr. Stancic. Her insight as both a physician and a patient, has fueled her passion to effect change within the medical community and help patients return to wellness.
