124 – Meet the doctor making it harder for lawmakers to ignore science

 

What’s good everyone…

My apologies for the short break in the beginning of the month. Check out the beginning of this episode to find out what happened.

On this episode, I’m chopping it up with Dr. Cedric Dark, the Founder and Executive Editor of Policy Prescriptions. Think of Policy Prescriptions as a cliff notes version of health policy research so that lawmakers can make bills based off actual evidence-based studies. Now at this for well over 10 years, Dr. Dark got his start while interning in Washington, D.C. and learning how much policymakers relied on politics and ideology.

Not only will you learn more about Cedric, but you’ll also get a civics lesson on exactly how health policy bills on funded on a federal level. For those who want to get more on the front lines of advocacy, especially with social media – this episode is for you!

 

Things you’ll learn in this episode:

  • How he developed in interest in Emergency Medicine
  • What people in Washington, D.C. think about physicians
  • His advice for clinicians looking to get into public advocacy
  • How he answers #imnotjustadoc
