PCP Billy Branch, MD hopes his appearance on this summer’s edition of American Ninja Warrior will inspire others to realize that fitness is important to health. Branch, who lost 80 pounds while training for the show, says he and his training partner always “preach ‘do it today’ because tomorrow is never guaranteed. We think that being healthy and helpful leads to happiness, and try to impact others around us in the same way. We’d love for that to be our message and something that might light a spark in others.”

All eyes are on Charlotte, NC as hospital-owned physician practices around the country wait to see how former Atrium Health and Novant Health medical groups fare now that they’ve declared their independence. Physicians with the former Atrium-owned Mecklenburg Medical Group have gone on to form Tryon Medical Group, while over 40 former Novant providers have joined Tennessee-based Holston Medical Group – a move some say is not unlike signing on with a health system. Both offer access to capital, technology, and management infrastructure. Holston Medical Group provider Ehab Sharawy, MD adds that patients will benefit from more personalized care and lower costs, due to the fact that the now-independent physicians no longer feel pressured to send their patients to higher-cost hospital facilities.
