After Taylor Justice was medically discharged from the Army, he learned firsthand about social determinants of health through working with other veterans. It led him to co-found Unite Us to digitally connect community services like housing, education and substance abuse counseling to meet the holistic needs of individuals.
As Chief Operating Officer, Christina Mainelli brings her healthcare industry knowledge to link physical and behavioral healthcare with community based services to support a whole-person approach. And she brings her savvy in scaling up healthcare businesses.
In this episode of the HealthBiz Podcast, Taylor and Christina share their vision and progress for connecting health and social care, provide insights on the pandemic and vaccine rollout, and tout their favorite books:
Taylor loves non-fiction, and recommends The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins
Christina is listening to A Promised Land by President Barack Obama and is learning Italian. (She also got me to admit I’m learning how to juggle.)
