I don’t always express myself with the written word. Sometimes I do it with the spoken word — on camera or over a microphone.
I recently had the pleasure of serving as a moderator for a TEDMED Great Challenges live event on the topic: ‘Where Health Begins: Social Determinants of Health,’ where experts discussed how healthier choices and better care can be brought to every community.
Another thoroughly enjoyable experience was being a guest on the ‘Night Shift with Tony Trupiano’ radio show, where I discussed politics at the height of the U.S. government shutdown.
Every time I get to do something like this, I only want to do it more. It gives me the same thrill as performing onstage in a theater always has. The only difference is that I’m using my words instead of someone else’s.
