In this episode, we talk about e-Patients, participatory medicine, and Covid-19. We also talk about “long haulers,” people who have Covid-19 as more of a chronic condition. Their symptoms extend long after recovery. Our guests are e-Patient Dave deBronkart and Dr. Marge Benham-Hutchins. Dave is a cancer survivor and international speaker on healthcare. He focuses especially on patient empowerment, engagement, and experience. Marge is Interim Chair of the Biobehavioral Health Science Department at the College of Nursing and Health Sciences at Texas A&M Corpus Christi.
