The Incubator Podcast

Hello Friends 👋

This week we have the pleasure of hosting Dr. Ravi Patel on the podcast. Ravi is a young and already accomplished neonatologist that embodies the attributes of a modern-day neonatologist. His exceptional research work has been published in some of the most impactful peer-reviewed journals. He is also an early adopter when it comes to leveraging social media for the dissemination of evidence-based practices. Daphna and I had a terrific time chatting with him this morning, we hope you'll enjoy listening to this episode as much as we enjoyed recording it. Cheers. - Ben
