Bye-Bye Boydie show

Sep 21, 2016

Health Matters has dispatched with another producer in near record time. We celebrate Tanner Boyd’s brief stint as Health Matters producer with this show, featuring Kentucky’s rank in healthcare, mistakes and low value healthcare services, and poor quality research on outdoor physical activity and reading books. Farewell Tanner, we hardly knew ye.

Tip: Of the nine questions Time magazine recommends you ask your doctor, we like “Is there anything I can do on my own to improve my condition?”, and “Do we have to do this now or can we revisit it later?”
