Stand Up! with Pete Dominick


Stand Up is a full length show similar to what we did on SIRIUSXM. We will talk about issues that matter to you, your health, the health of your family, community, country and planet. And we will laugh while we do it. I plan to try up load at least 3 shows a week. Mon, Weds and Friday and then move as fast as I can to be daily.

First I called a whole bunch of listeners to the podcast to see how they were navigating this nightmare then I welcomed my featured guest Dr Austin Frakt.

I learned of Austin's work through my friend Dr Aaron Carroll. Austin and Aaron joined forces and brains to create a health care blog together. It got so big they were both invited to contribute to the NY Times.

Austin is now the Director of the Partnered Evidence-based Policy Resource Center (PEPReC) at the Boston VA Healthcare System, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. He is also an Associate Professor with the Department of Health Law, Policy and Management at Boston University’s School of Public Health. In addition, he is an Adjunct Associate Professor with the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Here is Austin's latest at the times
