Using Data to Improve Healthcare ~ Postcard from the Prairie ~ Sue Balcom

Thursday, May 21, 2020 - In another episode of Conversations on Healthcare, hosts Mark Masselli and Margaret Flinter speak with Dr. John Halamka, president of the Mayo Clinic Platform, a partnership with multiple entities seeking to improve healthcare through better data. They discuss the “five phases” to a “new normal” as precursors fully reopening society. That includes isolation, contact tracing, vaccine development, and testing for infection and antibodies. ~~~ Tom Isern shares a Plains Folk essay, “Good Shepherds.” ~~~ We have a “Postcard from the Prairie” from Eliza Blue. And aside from her delightful skills as an essayist, she’s also a performing musician, and we’ll listen to one of her songs. ~~~ Sue Balcom joins us for a “Main Street Eats” conversation about French bread.
