168 – Pizza & Beer, Hockey, Covid-19 with Dr. Kyeremanteng
What’s good everyone,
Meet Dr. Kwadwo Kyeremanteng. He comes from north of the border and is a physician formally trained in critical care medicine and palliative care. His research focuses on making the ICU more efficient and improving access to palliative care services. To achieve this, he founded the Resource Optimization Network, a multidisciplinary research group working to reduce health spending in this area without compromising care. Dr. K, as he is fondly called, is a leading contributor helping the department to achieve its vision of shaping the future of Medicine.
Recently, he joined the physician podcast family with his popular show Solving Healthcare. Solving Healthcare is a podcast series featuring interviews and discussions on topics related to improving healthcare delivery in Canada based on the values of cost-effectiveness, dignity, and justice in healthcare. I gotta give him props, my man has been busy pumping out great content around Covid-19 and I definitely recommend you all subscribe to his podcast.
Dr. Kwadwo is on the hot seat today so we can learn more about him, why he started his show, and what are the differences in responses to COVID 19 between the US and Canada.
