The Community Cure

James Maskell

Imagine if there was a single, elegant solution to the biggest challenges facing healthcare: chronic disease, escalating costs, physician shortages, care access and affordability, physician burnout, loneliness, and mental health.

In his second book, James Maskell shows how community—specifically group medical visits—can help us solve these challenges. A supportive community provides the context for ongoing healthy behaviors, key to reversing chronic illness. By advocating for and facilitating group visits, those who are passionate about health transformation can shift the collective focus to prevention and root cause resolution.

The Community Cure is a comprehensive guide to group visits: how they originated, what they are, how to run them, how to avoid pitfalls and overcome challenges, best practices for launching and facilitating a group visit, as well as online and digital tools for ongoing support. This training manual empowers administrators, CEOs, staff, and healthcare providers to activate the future of medicine.
