My UK speaking agent, Maria Franzoni, interviewed me for her podcast, Speaking Business.

The Blurb

This week Maria’s guest on the show is Dr Pritpal S Tamber. Pritpal is the CEO and co-founder of Bridging Health & Community, a Seattle based non-profit dedicated to transforming how healthcare works with communities. At the heart of its work is the insight that our current approach to health, deploying technical solutions to biomedical problems, is failing in a world of circumstance related chronic conditions. Bridging Health & Community has gleaned 12 overarching principles for how healthcare can work with communities. These principles also have the potential to foster the agency of communities, their ability to make purposeful choices, something increasingly recognised as core to health. He is the former physician editor of TEDMED and began his career as an editor at the British Medical Journal.


It was recorded May 31st and showed up in my iTunes on August 9th. Here are the links:

Show Notes

In this week’s show Pritpal tells us how he became an editor at the British Medical Journal, what he learnt from working at BioMed Central, explains a bit about TED and TEDMED and talks about his work in Bridging Health & Community.

Pritpal shares his thoughts on why healthcare systems are failing and why he is flexible on being a cat or a dog person! All this and more…

I know full well that what you’re most interested in is the cat versus dog thing but I hope you enjoy it all the same…

I’m a doctor who trained as a medical editor and publisher and now researches and consults on the link between community power and health equity. My interest in community power started when I was the Physician Editor of TEDMED and is explained in My Perspective. I also work as a freelance medical editor and publisher for organisations that want to write high-quality articles and a strategy for their publishing and promotion. Find out more on my About page.
