Our first guest is Alejandro Badia, MD, FACS, FRCSI is a hand and upper extremity surgeon at Badia Hand to Shoulder Center in Doral, Florida. He will discuss his new book “Healthcare From The Trenches: An Insider Account of the Complex Barriers of U.S. Healthcare from the Providers and Patients’ Perspective”. The U.S. healthcare system is in crisis.
This book is written from a doctor’s perspective, by Alejandro Badia, M.D., F.A.C.S. He didn’t want to write this book but felt he had to because of the incredible problems he sees every day in getting the patient the care they need; and, as an expert, his treatment plans are constantly second-guessed and obstructed by the system which has a near-zero understanding of the problem that the patient faces. It became unbearable for Dr. Badia to continue to practice without calling out what is happening, every day, as the norm, and not the exception anymore.
Dr. Badia has been a practicing orthopedic surgeon for three decades and is the founder of OrthoNOW® clinics in South Florida. He has been in the trenches with our broken healthcare system since 1989. For more information on Dr. Badia visit Dr.Badia.com Orthonowcare.com and DoralDOC.com
Our second guest is PETA’s Lisbet Chiriboga, the program manager of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) TeachKind program. The TeachKind program shows how talking about real-life issues engages young people in a gentle, age-appropriate way, allowing them to start learning about what happens to animals they know and ones they have never met. Lisa can also share how families can access dozens of free lesson plans and activities at TeachKind.org, to help keep students’ academic skills sharp and promote compassion for animals while learning at home.
