Season 2 Preview

I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for joining us during the inaugural season of our podcast. In this time, we’ve introduced you to some very interesting individuals, each with a unique story of how they’ve made their personal contribution to health care delivery. The list included physicians and nurses, clinicians and researchers, executives, vendors, and entrepreneurs.
