Quality Forum 2020 Livestream – Plenary Presentation: Sickboy Podcast

February 27 @ 2:30 pm - 3:10 pm

Event Category:

Join us as we close out the Forum with this plenary presentation from the hosts of Sickboy Podcast.

Sickboy began because they recognized that when faced with difficult situations, illnesses and diseases, people tighten up, get awkward, and simply don’t know what to say. Taking the lead from Jeremie’s life long battle with cystic fibrosis, they help people understand that sometimes the best way to deal with illness, disease and life is simply to laugh. Through the therapy of laughter, we can begin to understand that whether sick or healthy, we’re all human, and we’re all dying, so let’s talk about it.
