Five Minutes in Healthcare is where I discuss current events with some of the industry's most influential leaders, as well as innovative thinkers who are working to meet the challenges of the novel coronavirus.
In this installment, I check in with Christopher Bacon, president of Minicarm.com, a resource for C-arm rentals, repair and purchasing. In addition to that, he is also the president of the New York Rolling Fury, a youth basketball league for people with physical disabilities.
We talk about the importance of organized sports for children with special needs. If you know a child in the New York area with an irreversible lower extremity disability, and the ability to push their own wheelchair, then I encourage you to get in touch with Christopher.
If you simply want to support a great cause, I hope you'll consider making a donation to the New York Rolling Fury online fundraiser.
During the interview, we also talk about Christopher's background with Orthoscan and how it prepared him to open minicarm.com, which does business throughout the country and around the world.
We hope you enjoy the conversation. Please tell us what you think, and let us know who you would like to see interviewed next:
