Show Notes

Anyone who has worked in healthcare long enough will recognise that there are parts of it that leave a bit to be desired, parts of it that are slightly broken, parts of it that are a bit sick.


BUT can they be cured?


Travis Christofferson is a health researcher and author of "Tripping over the truth" "Ketones, the fourth fuel" and "Curable"


With that last title, Travis investigates some of the areas that are broken, and some of the ways we can "cure" the healthcare system.
