Podcast #12-18 Bill Buskist, PhD- tips on teaching, learning & staying active – part 2



Bill Buskist (in his own words): “I am a retired Distinguished and Alumni Professor at Auburn University where the bulk of my professional work focused on undergraduate instruction and working with faculty nationally and internationally to develop and refine their classroom teaching skills. Outside of work, I practiced martial arts, eventually finishing with my 3rd degree black belt in TaeKwonDo before my retirement in 2016. I also participated and continue to enjoy kayaking and stand up paddle boarding along with long-distance endurance events such as triathlon and cycling. In the past 5 years I’ve also added downhill skiing and hiking to my list of outdoor activities.

Podcast #11-18 Dr Gary Chimes Lake Washington Sports and Spine part 2



Dr. Gary Chimes (in his own words): I am a sports medicine physician who works in Bellevue, Washington.   My area of focus is KPA – Keeping People Active.  In my former life, I worked in academic medicine as an MD/PhD, where I taught residents and trained fellows while seeing patients.  In my late 30s, I made the shift into private clinical practice so that I could focus more on my own health and also prioritize the needs of my patients more precisely.  I love to focus on Health Optimization, which at its heart recognizes that time is a limiting factor when prioritizing your health, so I help educate patients in developing both strategies and tactics in making optimal health decisions to meet their activity goals.  To learn more about Dr. Chimes, his clinical partner, Dr. Garrett Hyman, and their medical practice, visit www.lakewass.com
