Get Up Nation®! My name is Ben Biddick. I’m the Creator and Host of the Get Up Nation® Show and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball player Adam Greenberg. Recently I had the honor and privilege of speaking with Dr. Michael Lewis. Dr. Lewis graduated from the U.S. Military Academy, West Point, NY, and Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans. He completed post-graduate training at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Johns Hopkins University, and Walter Reed Army Institute of Research - where he developed the ESSENCE program, the nations first and largest Syndrome‐based Disease Outbreak Recognition System that is used by the US CDC, health departments across The United States, and many countries around the world. Subsequently, Dr. Lewis was assigned to the AFRIMS Research Laboratory in Bangkok, Thailand, where established the DoDs Global Emerging Infections Surveillance Program. There he developed and coordinated programs across Asia, led investigations into disease outbreaks, and was at ground zero for SARS and bird flu. Dr. Lewis is board-certified and a Fellow of the American College of Preventive Medicine and the American College of Nutrition. He is the author of When Brains Collide: What Every Athlete and Parent Should Know About the Prevention and Treatment of Concussions and Head Injuries, and the Founder of the Brain Health Education and Research Institute. Dr. Lewis, welcome back to the Get Up Nation® Show!
