Chronic Life Podcast, with Don Peterson & Dr. Kevin J. Payne, promotes living well beyond our diagnoses. Half of us now live with chronic conditions. The reality isn’t what we, our loved ones, or even health professionals expect. Our challenges go beyond biomedical: mindset, emotions, behaviors, relationships, and unfavorable environments. Those concerns can overwhelm us, but they don’t have to. We want to be good “patients,” but more important, we need to live good lives. CLP blends findings from medical, social, and behavioral science with practical advice born of living with, and caring for, chronic conditions. Our lively conversations know no boundaries and include every voice: those diagnosed; loved ones and caregivers; health entrepreneurs, executives, and researchers; and medical, health, and wellness professionals.
