Where do you go when you suddenly need health care? (17:48) Dr. Keith Kocher is an emergency physician and health services researcher studying the delivery and performance of acute care, and has written extensively on the value of the emergency department as a setting of care within the health system. He is also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Michigan. If you get a runny nose or suddenly don’t feel well where do you go? Do you go to a health center, urgent care, a clinic, or even the emergency room at the hospital? Depending on the symptoms and the time of day, where to go can be confusing. Professor Keith Kocher sheds some light on this topic. Overwhelmed: When No One Has Time (1:00:44) Brigid Schulte is the author of the New York Times bestselling book on time pressure, Overwhelmed: Work, Love & Play when No One has the Time, which named one of the notable books of the year by the Washington Post and NPR. She has spoken all over the world about the causes and consequences of our unsustainable, always-on culture, and how to make time for “The Good Life.” According to the Leisure Studies Department at the University of Iowa, true leisure is "that place in which we realize our humanity." If that’s true then we're doing dangerously little in realizing of our humanity. Brigid Schulte talks more about why leisure time is important and how we can be sure to make it a larger priority in our lives.
