Wellness 2.0, Prevention, Exercise & Food

One area where Health 2.0 technologies show great promise and some early market penetration is in tools for wellness. Employers, consumers, and even Medicare are now paying for programs and services that don’t look like traditional medical care, but may have great benefits. But in a world in which the food supply, and the physical and social environment seem to be programming us for obesity, what can the Health 2.0 community do?
