Let me just say that my “fans,” the Z-Pac, are the greatest people you could ever hope to meet. Case in point: Erik and Colleen Cox. They are a married couple, both nurse practitioners on the Big Island of Hawaii for a primary care group called Mango Medical. When they heard I was planning a family trip to the island they went above and beyond and got a local lab group to sponsor a dinner for the medical community where I got to bring my family, eat like a Kailua pig, and spit some mad rhymes & primary care reinvention fire. That’s some aloha spirit folks…MAD LUV to these healthcare peeps serving their community with pride on the most isolated land mass on the planet.
Here’s a little ZVlogg about the whole adventure, complete with obligatory GoPro snorkel footage and trip to Costco for da grind. Mahalo y’all!
