Our first episode with Centra's Medical Director Chris Thomson, MD.

Chris Thomson. MD and podcast host, Kate Kolb, discuss the elements and importance of this health and wellness education and communication in the intro podcast published on January 3, 2020.  

“Our health system traditionally has been built on reacting to illness and disease and doing our best to treat disease once it’s identified. And, thankfully, what has really been recognized is that our nation’s healthcare system has become expensive and hasn’t really had the global outcomes that others have seen. So, that transition from reacting to disease to truly promoting wellness in many ways has thankfully become the focus for healthcare,” Dr. Chris Thomson, Centra’s Chief Medical Officer explains.
