Great and useful

I really appreciate y’all putting on this podcast and it fills a much needed niche in helping develop new informaticians. Thanks so much and please add a “podroll” of other blog/podcasts that you find useful for public health informatics. Nothing fancy, just a list of links in your notes or web site.

Good Insight

I work in the field and it’s interesting to get takes and here from people in the industry to hear how they tackle some of the problems across multiple payers , provider and government organizations. Some of the questions and details could be a little more in depth as they don’t always go in depth but it’s still a good listen
