These are themes that come up regularly on social media and in discussions with fellow PTs and healthcare practitioners.

In this episode we discuss:

- Why and how insurance companies function

- The steps telemedicine is taking to change the healthcare market

- What it is like to be the only woman in the C-Suite

- and much more!
