Thank you for listening to the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast! In this episode I welcome Dr. Suzanne Shugg. Her mission is to change health care for the better by using insurance solutions, telemedicine and preventive care. Sounds familiar right? 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!
