Digital Health and Doctors: Friend or Foe?

Digital Health and Doctors: Friend or Foe?

In the era of machine learning, smartwatch wearables, online health portals, and AI-powered chatbots, healthcare workers now have more technology at their disposal than ever. While adapting to rapid advancement in the field of digital health can be a daunting task, it is often the key to growth and success in providing better care for patients. Today, we had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. David Lee Scher, a retired cardiologist who is currently a digital health consultant and the Chief Medical Officer at SpeechMED, a multilingual audio platform bringing patients important information in their native language. Join us in an engaging discussion about the implications of digital health on developing medical innovation, new perspectives on accessibility in the context of health equity, and the classic debate about whether artificial intelligence can really take over healthcare workers' jobs.

This is Your Brain on Hearing ft. Vinton Cerf!

Vinton Cerf, famous across the globe as a "father of the internet," was a developer of TCP/IP, which is a set of important communication protocols used in the Internet and similar computer networks. His work has allowed for data to be sent to the intended destination in computer networks around the world, which is also what allowed you to access this website and listen to our podcast! But what not as many people know about Mr. Cerf is that he, along with his wife, has a hearing impairment that has affected him from childhood. Today, we're going to examine the structures and functions of the nervous system that allow us to hear and process auditory information. Also, be sure to tune in to listen to our interview with Mr. Cerf about his life experiences and work to make technology more accessible for disabled communities.
