Is It Better to Educate or Engage First?

We had an interesting conversation in the office today regarding patient engagement and patient education. We were questioning whether an engaged person becomes more educated on managing their health or does an educated person become more engaged. I came from the angle that an engaged person wants to learn more because the subject is meaningful to them and they are motivated to action. I took a personal take on this. I received the results of my annual physical and needed to learn everything I could on how to manage a couple of issues. Ellen took the opposite view. She felt that only because I was educated on the importance of my diet to my overall health was I engaged to learn so much.
