We conducted two interviews with Dr Mark Hyman. In the first part of the interview, Dr. Mark Hyman takes us through his journey through Haiti after the devastating earthquake hit the region. In the second part of the interview, Dr. Mark Hyman takes us through something I refer to all the time – a doctor should be a partner in a patient’s health journey. The similarities between South Africa and Haiti is also discussed in this interview.
