PYA Sponsors New Healthcare Podcast Hosted by U.S. Senator and Surgeon

Senator Bill Frist, transplant surgeon and two-term United States Senator, has launched “A Second Opinion” podcast that connects with healthcare leaders and innovators to create health awareness and understanding.  PYA is proud to help foster these solution-oriented conversations about the complexities of healthcare in the U.S. as an episode sponsor.

Through insightful discussions of ideas from a wide range of perspectives, the podcast aims to help shape the healthcare industry’s focus on vital issues.  In each episode, Senator Frist and his accomplished guests elaborate on complex health-related topics, such as access to insurance, the doctor-patient relationship, and the opioid epidemic.  Guests have included Dr. Toby Cosgrove, Executive Advisor of Healthcare & Life Sciences for Google Cloud; Senator Lamar Alexander, Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions; and Aneesh Chopra, President of CareJourney and the first U.S. Chief of Technology Officer under President Obama.

PYA is a sponsor of an upcoming September 23 podcast episode in which Senator Bill Frist interviews Dr. Jeff Patton, oncologist and President of Physician Services at OneOncology, and CEO and Board Chair of Tennessee Oncology.  In addition to sharing how he decided to become an oncologist, Dr. Patton will discuss the founding of OneOncology and the benefits of its model; why moving cancer care out of the hospital setting can improve value and reduce costs for consumers; and changes to cancer care over the years, such as new drugs, genetic-specific treatments, and the impact of the Human Genome Project.   

Like “A Second Opinion,” PYA is committed to supporting innovative healthcare solutions for intricate and nuanced industry challenges, and values the podcast’s broad-spectrum, expert-driven approach.
