Dr. Cory Jenks, doctor of pharmacy, comedian, speaker, and author, sits down with Mike Giardina at the Symposium for Metabolic Health in San Diego, California.

Well, Dr. Jenks has a very powerful message that has been transmitted through in-person events and his new book: “Permission to Care: Building a Healthcare Culture that Thrives in Chaos.” Dr. Jenks wants healthcare professionals to stop acting like robots and learn to adapt to the unexpected.
