Thanks so much to my good friend "Dr. M" for coming on Show 90 to talk about the sometimes misunderstood topics of palliative medicine and hospice care. We both trained as family physicians, but now he has found a calling to take up the specialty of palliative medicine. (You can listen to the show in the player above or download the show here Also check out the video post above)
Following our conversation, which included talking about his blog called "The Journey Learned," Dr. M and I talked about our med school days when we were on call during certain rotations and the obscure facts that we learned to look good on rounds. We also talked about how we come to find out that I played piano and how he liked to sing - definitely great stress relief - especially during those stress filled times of med school.
At the end of the show, our friend Kevin called in to share some thoughts on hospice care. He is a member of the "Warrior's Wish Foundation." You may remember Kevin calling in back on show 54 and show 59 to share how medblogger GruntDoc helped to make a difference in the life of a military family. Thanks Kevin for calling into the show.
Finally, I wrapped up the show by talking about how I will be in Chicago next week for a conference. My shows next week will be broadcast from the fabulous and luxurious "Annie and Burl Live" studios in Chicago. I'm really looking forward to that. Before I leave for Chicago, I will be posting some more old video of me at a younger age driving around Chicago. It's riveting video - hehe - at least it was fun to put together. Have a great weekend everybody!
