The body keeps no secrets from Alexander Tsiaras, who developed scientific visualization software to enable him to create video and still imagery to simply explain health and disease in terms that anyone can understand. With his belief that information will lead to a healthier population, Tsiaras walks audiences through The 9 Visual Rules of Wellness and can address a host of specific medical issues and health concerns. Called a “Digital Age Leonardo da Vinci,” Tsiaras is an artist, science photojournalist and technology innovator. In this riveting presentation, Tsiaras takes an audience through a visual journal into the future of medicine by sharing:
- A groundbreaking tour of the inner workings of the human body
- Provocative video that illustrates a range of astounding medical information, including the cycle from conception to birth as well as the effects and stages of various disease states
- How this work is forging a new path to impact our health and access to health information dramatically
U.S. health care spending is approaching $2 trillion a year and is expected to double over the next 10 years. Driving the increased spending is the treatment of largely preventable diseases. What if people could literally see the impact of smoking, stress, overeating and other costly life choices on their bodies and the benefits when they positively changed behavior and watched their body heal itself? The CEO of Anatomical Travelogue, Alexander Tsiaras, provides that opportunity by sharing with audiences a revealing exploration of the human body that is both moving and occasionally disquieting, as well as:
· A groundbreaking look at “The 9 Visual Rules of Wellness,” with a focus on wellness and prevention
· A glimpse inside the human body to see a real smoker’s lung, lumpy plaques in a coronary artery, a heart attack in the making and the impact of sleep deprivation
· How exercise and a clean environment can make you healthier and live longer
Alexander Tsiaras revolutionized the health conversation with his pioneering innovations that illustrate the intricate details of the human body—making wellness understandable to everyone.
Tsiaras is an internationally renowned photojournalist and technology innovator who is the CEO and founder of Anatomical Travelogue and TheVisualMD.com. Years after his initial viewing of X-rays, Tsiaras taught himself myriad medical disciplines and programming languages that eventually led him to discover a way to use traditional images of the human body to build images and videos that demonstrate a wide array of health issues and disease states letting users learn, understand and interact with health content on the Internet. With a firm belief that access to health information will lead to a healthier population, Tsiaras’ latest venture has resulted in his imagery becoming the new standard used to explain wellness and disease. His work will power many of America’s premier media and online health programs and his wellness initiative, “The 9 Visual Rules of Wellness” is one of the most innovative health initiatives ever launched. Tsiaras’ dazzling images have been featured on more than 150 magazine covers, including those of TIME and LIFE. He is the publisher of six books, including a visual guide to coping with depression, a review and comparison of the human body, a guide to sexual health and a revolutionary image collection depicting the miracles of conception and birth. He has been a guest on NPR and has appeared numerous times on television, including on Oprah, NBC’s TODAY, MSNBC News, The Charlie Rose Show, Good Morning America and the BBC.
