Episode 169 : Introducing Coda 2020 With Jesse Spurr & Courtney Howard

Featured Guest: Jesse Spurr & Courtney Howard

  • Feb 06, 2020

“Action feels better than anxiety”

Jesse Spurr is an ICU nurse, Dr. Courtney Howard is an Emergency physician, and they are both essential parts of a new international healthcare conference: Coda 2020. We discuss both why and how Coda will focus on climate change, the unique approach to information sharing and collaboration it will engender, and just what is at stake.

Coda 2020 is going to be very special, and I am honored to announce that I will be participating as a member of the conference faculty. Please check out the website and stand by to register! Registration goes live on April 1, 2020. Coda takes place in Melbourne, Australia from Sept 28-Oct 2, 2020.
