KairWell was founded by Sean Bannister a Physician Assistant and MBA with more than 25 years of leadership and clinical medicine expertise. Improved health and wellness have long been passions that Sean has pursued through his own diet and lifestyle choices, as well as, in his choice of career.
It was his own battle with severe rheumatoid arthritis that finally convinced him to develop the KairWell social network to espouse the importance of understanding your health conditions and risks, following your doctorâ€™s instructions, telling others about your health and wellness concerns, and maintaining a fit and healthy lifestyle.
By collaborating with his family and friends, Sean has been able to sustain improved control of his disabling disease, regain a positive outlook on life, and belief that he still could accomplish anything.
At KairWell we believe health information is shrouded in secrecy due to strict privacy laws that were developed to protect us from losing our health insurance between jobs and provide for the security and confidentiality of our personal information. Unfortunately, this culture of â€œhealth information secrecyâ€ contributes to us frequently withholding important health and wellness concerns from our family members and loved ones. Reversing this trend is key to improving overall health and wellness and avoiding preventable disasters.
At KairWell we seek to achieve this through:
Our belief in sharing is so essential that the Tree of Life, which symbolizes connectedness, is incorporated in our logo, along with the color green that symbolizes health.
