Always informative and entertaining

Thanks Greg

RaiderAlum ,

Great information ... even for patients!

Great podcast! It's kind of like "lifting the veil" on some very important health-related subjects. While I'm not a healthcare professional, I am a patient. Many of the podcasts help me understand healthcare trends and innovations that affect me and my family. And the moderator helps the guest communicate his/her subject matter in a way that even a general audience can understand, without losing those who live and work in this area. Give it a listen!
