Dr William Kassler - Deputy Health Officer and Lead Population Health Officer at IBM Watson Health

Dr. William Kassler of IBM Watson Health explains the roles of Fear, Resilience and Self-care

With the combination of the Covid crisis and the increased awareness of mental health in the month of May (which is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth) I wanted to dig deeper into mental health and find out what we can do as individuals and organizations to resource ourselves and those around us.

Our guest in this episode is Dr. William Kassler, MD, MPH, Deputy Health Officer and Lead Population Health Officer at IBM Watson Health. Dr. Kassler has held a variety of roles at Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Dr. Kassler has received numerous awards from the United States Public Health Service, including the Surgeon General’s Meritorious Service Award, and the Bi-State Primary Care Association President’s Award for “unyielding dedication to community-based access to care for the poor and disadvantaged.” We certainly appreciate his dedication to serving people from across our communities.

He’s still a practicing internist and continues to hold office hours in his role at IBM. In this episode, we discuss the role of self-care in developing resilience to conquer fear.
