About the Show
Welcome to Health Hats, learning on the journey toward best health. I am Danny van Leeuwen, a two-legged, old, cisgender, white man with privilege, living in a food oasis, who can afford many hats and knows a little about a lot of healthcare and a lot about very little. Most people wear hats one at a time, but I wear them all at once. We will listen and learn about what it takes to adjust to life's realities in the awesome circus of healthcare. Let's make some sense of all this.

The Show
We make decisions about our health every day, whether we name it a decision or not. Just this morning, it’s 11 am as I’m writing this intro, I’ve made many health decisions. At 2 am, I decided to get out of bed, eat something, and take ibuprofen for hip and leg pain. I chose waffles over granola for breakfast.
