    #074 Lessons Learnt from Modern Day Hunter-Gatherers — Prof Herman Pontzer

    #074 Lessons Learnt from Modern Day Hunter-Gatherers — Prof Herman Pontzer

    Herman Pontzer is an Associate Professor of Evolutionary Anthropology at Duke University. He studies how our species’ deep past shapes our health and physiology today.

    He is the author of Burn: New Science Reveals How Metabolism Shapes Your Body, Health, and Longevity.

    In his book, he follows the Hadza community — a group of people who live in Tanzania and are relatively untouched by the modern sedentary lifestyle. They are hunter gatherers and are about 7 times more active than the average American.

    You would expect then, that they must be burning thousands of more calories than the typical desk jockey — but they don’t. In fact, on average, they burn the same number of calories as the average American — even when we adjust for height and weight.

    So what’s going on?

    #073 To Be Interesting, Be Interested — Dr Imran Mahmud

    #073 To Be Interesting, Be Interested — Dr Imran Mahmud

    Dr Imran Mahmud studied Medicine at Oxford, before studying Public Health at Harvard on a Fulbright Scholarship. He then ranked first in the country and entered the Ophthalmology training programme which he then promptly left, joining McKinsey. In 2018 he co-founded NYE Health, raising over £4M. He is now a startup advisor, angel investor and consultant on digital health topics.

    We speak about leaving Medicine and if the grass is really greener on the other side, how to network, effective decision making and lots more. I hope you enjoy.

    #072 Chief Medical Officer, Bupa (1995–2012) — Dr Andrew Vallance-Owen MBE

    Dr Andrew Vallance-Owen MBE was the Chief Medical Officer of Bupa between 1995–2012. He led work to bring patient reported outcomes into vogue in both the private and public sectors — and he was awarded an MBE in the 2014 Queen’s Birthday Honours. He now has a number of non-executive roles in healthcare, including as Chief Medical Officer of Medicover and on the boards of startups such as Testcard, Jude and Cerina.

    We talk about his story, what he learnt about crisis management and the future role of private healthcare in the UK.

    I hope you enjoy.

    #071 Patient Flow & Diversity — Dr Rebecca Pope (Roche)

    Dr Rebecca Pope is the UK Digital & Data Science Innovation Lead at Roche, Senior Research Fellow in AI applied to real healthcare problems at UCL and a Clinical Neuroscientist.

    She was previously UK Director of Data Science & AI for KPMG and has been voted the Most Influential Woman in UK Tech. Her writing also regularly appears in the Guardian and the Times .

    We speak about what she learned from moving from research to industry, how AI can actually make Medicine more personal and I ask her why she believes in promoting diversity in STEM and why it isn’t just a case of ‘best person for the job’.

    I hope you enjoy.

    #070 AI Sepsis Prediction — Dr Michael Moor (ETH Zurich)

    #070 AI Sepsis Prediction — Dr Michael Moor (ETH Zurich)

    Dr Michael Moor is a medical doctor doing his PhD in the Machine Learning and Computational Biology Lab at ETH Zurich.

    Some of his most interesting research looks at predicting sepsis using machine learning approaches.

    In case you’re unfamiliar, sepsis is a life threatening condition in which the body’s natural defences against an infection go into overdrive.

    Mortality from septic shock can be up to 50% and every minute counts. In fact, for every hour treatment is delayed — mortality increases by 7.6%.

    We started off by talking about a paper published in JAMA earlier this year. It assessed a popular sepsis prediction tool and found that it wasn’t very good. It was delivering so many false positives, that doctors would need to assess up to 109 patients flagged by the tool just to find one patient who was actually septic…

    #069 Taboo Health — Dr Patrick Carroll (CMO Hims & Hers)

    Dr Patrick Carroll is the Chief Medical Officer of Hims & Hers — a US Telehealth company which he helped go public in a $1.6 billion dollar SPAC deal. Hims & Hers focuses on many taboo health issues such as sexual health issues, hair loss and mental health.

    Dr Carroll graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and was previously CMO of Walgreens.

    We talk about how he got to where he is, what advice he gives to young physician-leaders, why working in primary care was critical for his career and some of the lessons he’s learnt along the way.

    I hope you enjoy.

Gerads ,

terrific guests

awesome interviews with physicians thinking outside the box of traditional medicine. Very inspiring for this doc. Loved your episode with Dr Case and docs learning to code and of course a big fan of Dr Abdaal who is a huge star on Youtube. Binging on the rest of your episodes. Great interviewing style. Thanks for the great content.
