Monday, March 16, 2020 – From the Conversations on Healthcare Podcast, we hear from Dr. Joseph Kvedar, a pioneer in the telehealth movement and president-elect of the American Telemedicine Association. He visits with hosts Mark Masselli and Margaret Flinter about the evolving role of telehealth and remote monitoring, especially against the backdrop of the current pandemic. ~~~ Tom Isern shares a Plains Folk essay that remembers Hazel Miner on the 100th anniversary of the great blizzard that took the young heroine’s life. ~~~ In a story that first aired on All Things Considered, NPR's Ailsa Chang speaks with journalist Sierra Crane Murdoch about her new book Yellow Bird. It follows the story of a Native American woman and her quest to find a missing oil worker on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation. ~~~ From the UND Presidential Podcast, Interim President Joshua Wynne sits down with Associate Dean Dr. Don Warne, director of the Indians into Medicine and the Public Health programs at the School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
