Shout out to our local Family Physician Dr. Lawrence Yang (@GatewayMedic) for launching his first #FTSintheFonda with guest Jana Buhlmann (@baldgrrl)! Jana is a Patient and Caregiver Advocate in BC.
So many pearls packed in this car ride but I especially appreciate the dialogue on patients conducting their own research and how greater access to information has changed the dynamic between physicians and patients. Can we build a trusted source of online resources that empowers physicians, patients, and their caregivers?
Thank you Lawrence and Jana for sharing your courageous conversation with the world.

Thanks so much Jacqueline!! As with most endeavours like this, one never knows how it will be received. Your passion and enthusiasm is inspiring!
As is yours! I love the concept as well as your commitment to learning and receptiveness to new ideas and opinions. We need role models that are willing to risk and be vulnerable in order to address some of the serious challenges we face in healthcare. I appreciate your courage to step forward and change the game. ~ Jacqueline
