Dr. Chad Kahl is the Chief Medical Officer to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Jim Karol is a world renowned mentalist and entertainer, known for his ability to harness the power of the human mind.  They’re an unlikely duo, but both deeply understand the link between mental wellness and physical healing, and want to be change agents for the way health care is perceived and delivered to military members and veterans.

  • Dr. Kahl’s article in the Military Times about Blue Zones
  • The connection between mental wellness and physical healing
  • Cognitive dissonance with drone warfare "the ender wiggins effect"
