Jeremy Corr

Jeremy is the host of the New Books in Medicine podcast, part of the New Books Network (NBN), a nonprofit network of podcast channels reaching 800,000 listeners each month.

As a podcast host, Jeremy has interviewed some of the top leaders and most brilliant minds in healthcare, including former Cleveland Clinic CEO Dr. Toby Cosgrove, current MGMA president and CEO Dr. Halee Fischer-Wright, president and CEO of Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health Dr. Steven Klasko, professor of neurology and parkinson’s disease researcher Dr. Andrew Lees, director of the Vaccine Education Center and noted author Dr. Paul Offit, and the author of multiple New York Times bestsellers Sam Kean.

In March 2018, Jeremy interviewed his future “Fixing Healthcare” co-host Dr. Robert Pearl following the publication of the Washington Post bestseller “Mistreated: Why We Think We’re Getting Good Healthcare—And Why We’re Usually Wrong.”

As a University of Iowa history major, Jeremy took a particular interest in the evolution of medicine. For his podcast, he reads an average of one healthcare book a week. At just one day old, Jeremy was rushed to the University of Iowa Hospital for emergency, life-saving surgery. He spent the first few months of his life in the hospital, undergoing multiple procedures. Ever since, Jeremy has had a strong admiration for the doctors who’ve helped him manage his lifelong condition.

With “Fixing Healthcare,” Jeremy is eager to shine the spotlight on the doctors and healthcare leaders most capable of transforming American medicine. By bringing greater attention to new healthcare solutions, Jeremy hopes this show will rejuvenate the healthcare system and improve doctor-patient relationships throughout the country.
