Research shows that Americans are feeling more isolated or lonely than ever, and social media is more cause than solution. As a public health concern, by some estimates, it’s as dangerous to feel isolated as it is to smoke 15 cigarettes in one day. Those who are most isolated have a 45% higher likelihood of early death from all causes, compared to 20% for obesity and 30% for alcoholism. A comprehensive Naturopathic Medicine care plan must involve helping our patients feel connected with their loved ones, their communities, and especially themselves. This Webinar will elucidate the latest research on social isolation as a determinant of health outcomes, and provide practical tips that you can begin to incorporate with your patients.

Robert Kachko ND, LAc graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Doctoral Degree in Naturopathic Medicine and a Masters Degree in Acupuncture from the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine and Acupuncture Institute. Dr. Kachko is co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of TribeRx, a medical technology company working on helping physicians address social isolation among their patient population.

He also maintains a private practice at InnerSource Health in New York City. He proudly serves on the Board of Directors of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP) and the New York Association of Naturopathic Physicians (NYANP), and as Chair of Public Education and Media Affairs for the AANP.


In order to create access to natural approaches to care, he works to expand research and awareness of holistic approaches to aging. He serves on the Medical and Dental Advisory Board for Sharp Again Naturally, a non-profit committed to natural approaches to Alzheimer's and Dementia care. He also serves as clinical research consultant to the Alzheimer's Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medical.

This AANP webinar is sponsored by TribeRx. It is free for members; the non-member cost is $39.
