Dr. David Nganele is a New York Times-profiled health education expert. He provides individuals with the knowledge and tools to help them become their own best doctor. He believes that “The More You Know, The Better You’ll Live.” He is also one of the premier writers and speakers on how to identify and manage the cost of healthcare while getting better services

For 15 years, Dr. Nganele managed some of the biggest-selling drugs on the market with the largest pharmaceutical company in the world. He eventually started a health education company where he has worked with physician groups, insurance companies, community leaders and politicians to develop award-wining and innovative programs. He has served on the Board of Advisors of a health insurance company.

He has written a number of books, including “The Best Healthcare For Less: Save Money on Chronic Medical Conditions and Prescription Drugs” which shows you how you can identify the various cost aspects of a disease such as physician services, hospitalizations, nursing home care, prescription drugs, health insurance and end-of life issues. He shows how these costs can be effectively managed so that you get better care while spending less.

He also examines other aspects of the cost of a disease that are usually not recognized or well managed. These include, the effect of an illness on employment, as well as, the effect of the illness on the patient’s emotional state and their relationship to their loved ones.

His latest book is “Prescription Drug$; What You Must Know: From Avoiding Medication Errors To Saving On The Cost; A Manual For Your Peace Of Mind.” He wrote this book after two of his family members almost got injured, and one almost died, from medication errors. In talking to other individuals and researching the subject, he found out that medication errors and drug reactions kill more people each year than diabetes or car accidents. He also found out that most of these incidences are never made available to the public. This book is about what you can do to avoid becoming a victim of medication errors, as well as, how you can reduce your out-of-pocket costs for prescription drugs, whether you have insurance or not. It is also intended for caregivers to help them take better care of their loved ones, especially seniors, where most of these errors and drug interactions occur.
