Great insights, timely themes

Full disclosure, I help produce this podcast, however I'm super proud of it. We work hard to tell novel stories about health care and we hope this will help make the industry a little less confusing. I hope people will enjoy listening to this podcast as much, if not more than we've had making it. And please leave us feedback or tweet us @cambia
