MD, MPH, and… Superhero?


I first read about Dr. Jay Parkinson in this Gothamist interview; and now that I’ve combed through his website, I’m convinced: the man is a visionary (I resisted typing “super-human”).

Not content to wait for government or industry to fix our seriously broken healthcare system (which clearly will never happen), he’s instead re-creating the entire doctor-patient “business model” by using techniques and technologies that work within–and even make the best of–existing realities. Pretty amazing stuff.

It would be hard not to admire his vision and his values. Plus, he likes cheap Mexican food and some pretty sweet tunes.

    Thanks for the post. You got it. It’s all about bringing down the system from within. Something’s got to change. And there are too many people out there who stand to make money off your health (or lack thereof) to change the situation. Take care.
