Duration Health was founded by Benjamin Jack, a working ER doctor in the Philadelphia area. Jack wanted to put together an emergency medical kit for himself, both for travel and for “general preparedness,” he says. But even as an MD, Jack found it difficult to obtain the basic drugs he’d want in a crisis. … “Getting a kit is like being able to have urgent care anywhere,” says Dr. Jack. [Axios*]
Today’s topic is timely. Plain and simple.
“We prescribe and ship emergency Med Kits, with the same Rx and OTC medications doctors like me carry for personal emergencies,” says Dr. Jack. “We prescribe meds now, before you need them.”
Our guest and friend on The DocPreneur Leadership Podcast is Benjamin Jack, MD. He’s the Founder of Duration Health and an Emergency Physician.
