Center for Innovation

I am sitting in an interesting talk given by the Chief Medical Officer of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Barry Straube. The talk is an interesting one, with his vision for healthcare and government an optimistic one. This organization has been funded 10 billion dollars over 10 years, and I am excited to see what innovation they help foster.

Back to work...

It has been about 3 weeks since my previous post.  So much has passed since then-- my time on the road for week, my sister-in-law's wedding in Lake Placid, and our wonderful trip to Iceland (more to follow, I promise).  Having just returned from a few days back home for the holidays it is quite unsettling to know that good old fashion honest work starts up again tomorrow.  I have really enjoyed the travel, time on the road, meeting new people that do the same things that I do differently.  I have also let some of the defense mechanisms that get me through residency lie dormant, and I am loathe to reactivate them.  Oh well, onward we go!
