    Episode 45 - A New Urgent Care

    Episode 45 - A New Urgent Care

    Dr. Harris is joined by Dr. Tamara Beckford, an emergency medicine physician, and entrepreneur who sees a bright future for online medicine. Dr. Beckford has been taking care of "urgencies" in the ER that often could be addressed in the outpatient setting; however, our primary care physicians are overloaded and frequently overbooked. These urgencies go untreated and transform into emergencies that land people in the ER. Dr. Beckford asked herself if there was a better way, and if she could help. She harnessed the entrepreneurial spirit to create UR Caring Docs, a telemedicine platform to treat urgencies before becoming emergencies. Learn more about her approach and caring nature in this episode of the Strive for Great Health Podcast.

    Episode 40 - Nutrition Myths Debunked

    Dr. Harris welcomes back a good friend of the podcast, Joseph Murci, to discuss nutrition myths. Their previous podcast debunked a few of the most common and well-believed myths in exercise, and this time, it was time to tackle nutrition myths. Nutrition is a complex subject as food serves as energy, medicine, and a signaling system. However, some things are accepted by many as being true are entirely false. Dr. Harris and Mr. Murci dispel some common nutrition myths and offer what you should be doing instead to ensure you develop a well-rounded nutrition plan.
