Back in August I had the great opportunity to present at The 21 Convention alongside longtime friends Keith Norris, Skyler Tanner, Greg Swann and...Dr. Doug McGuff. After Doug's presentation, we headed over to Skyler's house for a meal just hours before I was to fly out.
A few days later I blogged about Doug's presentation in detail: Dr. Doug McGuff’s The 21 Convention Presentation in 2 Words: You’re Fucked. Lot's of good comments on that post expounding upon the problem.
So just today, the video of his full presentation has been released on YouTube. His previous 21 Convention presentation a few years back stands at nearly 190,000 views, so that's an indication of the quality, depth and insight Doug always brings. Of course, those who have read his co-authored book, Body by Science, already know the kind of knowledge and experience Doug brings to the table.
So here you go. Make yourself some available time and watch this, and then spread it around, especially in a time when everyone's going on and on about who's gonna pay for there health care besides themselves. Here's a true look, from the inside and in the trenches.
If I've ever met a nicer guy than Doug, I just don't remember it. Here's a guy who has practiced as an ER doc for 23 years—a place where seconds count and there's never a second chance. He cares deeply for people, yet is no willy-nilly bleeding heart. He knows what it really takes to provide real medical care competently.
Unfortunately, guys like him will never have a seat at the healthcare policy table, when in reality, guys like him are the only ones who ought to have such a seat.
