I would like to open the forum to comments and insights regarding educating the layperson to the role that complex systems play in their lives. First off, how can we as a society educate people on complex system parallels such as positive feeback systems vs. negative feedback systems? And how such systems impact thier life; economics, healthcare, social systems, etc. Secondly can we demonstrate to people how knowledge about complexity impacts thier lives directly, or indirectly, and the choices they make. As a future General Medical Practitioner this topic is of utmost importance in fixing some of the great healthcare problems facing the United States currently. Any constructive comments or insights are wanted. Thank you for your time.
