Bio

Widely regarded as an authority on ‘Effortless Wellness”, Dr. Darria Long Gillespie integrates cutting edge medicine with holistic health and psychology to give her audiences powerful tools to make wellness simplified, high yield and efficient. A Yale and Harvard-trained ER doctor, head of clinical strategy at leading population health company Sharecare, and mom of two children under 4, Dr. Darria frequently appears on CNN, Fox News, Dr. Oz Show, and The Doctors, and is a blogger for The Huffington Post.

As an ER doctor, Dr. Darria understands having too much to do and information overload in the most stressful of situations - and too little time to deal with it. She quickly learned techniques to save time – and lives. Becoming a patient herself was a wakeup call to do the same with her own health and to find solutions to her own challenges. She now brings these same high-yield strategies for wellness to her audiences, saving them time, struggles, [and their sanity].

Keynote Descriptions (each can also be offered as a workshop):

High-Yield Health: Achieve Your Health Goals…By Doing Less (for executives or corporations): We talk about health more than ever before, yet seemingly the harder we work at it, the less healthy we are becoming. Why? Because we’re wasting time on the wrong things. What if, instead of getting in the way, healthy decisions could help you succeed – to feel better and to perform better at work and at home? Pulling together the latest research in psychology, design, cutting-edge medicine, and also holistic health, Dr. Darria not only makes healthy decisions simpler, but also more efficient and even effortless. Don’t work harder at being healthy, work smarter – and thrive.

The Busy Woman’s Guide to Health…and Sanity: Thrive More…By Doing Less: How did raising a healthy family become so hard? When did it start requiring a PhD to feed your family? Raising a healthy family today doesn’t need to feel like such a struggle. Dr. Darria integrates cutting edge medicine, holistic health, psychology, and design to not only make healthy decisions simpler, but also more efficient – for the entire family. Learn simple steps real parents and overscheduled families can take to streamline their wellness choices today.
