We experimented with the origin story back in 2010 with an entry from Dr. Pam Harris sharing her origins story coming from Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Today we are re-debuting the Pallimed Origins with a new format: audio!
The first new-installment kicks off with Debra Parker Oliver, a professor and researcher at the University of Missouri with a background in social work and hospice management. I interviewed her in early May 2013 in Kansas City, MO during a meeting with her research colleagues. Many of you are familiar with Debbie Oliver and her husband David from their moving plenary session at the 2013 AAHPM/HPNA Annual Assembly or from their video blog on their journey through health care. Lyle Fettig wrote a great review about the plenary back in March.
Take a listen to our interview with Debbie Oliver and please give us feedback on the interview, format and new series.
(A note on this series: We are using Soundcloud to host the audio files for Pallimed Origins (click here if you cannot find the embedded audio above). The audio files can be downloaded for offline listening as well. We already have a few interviews in the can, but I am always looking for more interesting stories, so if you know anyone please make sure to contact firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will get them on the list. Any discipline, any background are welcome. Interviews can be done in person, by phone or internet.)
