Since AI dissemination exploded in 2022, I wanted to create my holiday letter using a variety of AI apps. May you all have adventures, rest, and inspiration. Love ya.
Better to watch than listen
Prefer to read, experience impaired hearing or deafness?

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. I’m the Rosetta Stone of Healthcare. 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.

I dropped the intro script into CHAT GPT asking for a Shakespearean sonnet version. Here’s the result. Notice mispronunciations.
Listen, dear reader, and you shall learn
Of the awesome circus that is healthcare
A world of endless questions, twists, and turns
Where realities are often hard to bear
We must adjust to life’s harsh realities
And navigate the maze of rules and regulations
We must learn to listen to all perspectives
And find ways to work together in collaboration
For in the world of healthcare, no one person
Can know all the answers or have all the solutions
We must listen and learn from one another
And work together to find the best resolutions
So let us listen and learn, my dear friends
And together we’ll weather this circus of healthcare
We’ll find the strength to adjust to life’s realities
And face whatever challenges may come our way
The Boland van Leeuwen family, Ann, Danny and JoJo, managed to avoid Covid in 2022. Seems inevitable we’ll succumb, although we’re careful Happy New Year 2023. I traveled to Portugal, Spain, upstate New York, DC, Philadelphia and more, yet still infection free. I can’t stand
that AI voice. Here’s the second voice. My grandsons, Leon and Oscar continue to grow and retain their sweet selves.
I’m grateful for the relative stability of my health this year. Managing to keep accomplishing everything I want. Planning for eye surgery in February to correct my deteriorating double vision.
I’m playing music almost every day – approximately 320 out of 365 days, averaging 5.5 hours a week, but who’s counting. I love the Lechuga Fresca Latin Band. We play about once a month, between rehearsals and gigs. Leon’s playing piano as well. Here’s a couple of haikus created in CHAT CPG https://chat.openai.com/chat
Blows life into melodies
Jazz sax improvisation
Soulfully soaring high
As you probably know my podcast became written, audio and video, this year. This is blog #552, audio episode #187, and video #21. No wonder I don’t publish weekly anymore. Too much work! My most listened to episode was May 22nd Burnout, Healthy Habits, American College of Lifestyle Medicine (109 downloads) and most watched, Aug 20th Playing Baritone Saxophone with Disabilities. Can Be Done! 115 video views and 52 downloads
A word from our sponsor, Abridge a la ee cummings
Record, record, big pink button pressed
Healthcare conversations now captured, expressed
With doctors and clinicians, oh how they drone
But with ABridge, I can listen and own
The transcript, a treasure trove of medical insights
Read it at home, my worries and frights
Alleviated, my knowledge now increased
Record, record, my healthcare piece by piece
No longer lost in the shuffle or the fray
Record, record, my healthcare at bay
With ABridge by my side, I am in control
Record, record, my healthcare whole
My PCORI-related advocacy for 2022-23 centers on patient partnership and community-based research. According to CHAT CPG, patient partnership and community-based research is a collaborative approach to conducting research that involves meaningful engagement with patients and community members throughout the research process. This approach recognizes the valuable insights and experiences of patients and community members and incorporates their perspectives into the design and implementation of research studies. By involving patients and community members in the research process, researchers can ensure that their research is relevant and meaningful to the population being studied. Overall, patient partnership and community-based research can lead to more responsive, relevant, and impactful research that addresses the needs and concerns of patients and communities.
What do you think? I had fun doing this. I’m not sure I’ll use the overdubbing much or the CHAT GPT, but I do like the images from DALL.E. As I become more comfortable with video this year, I’ll be ready to focus again on using music more. May you all have adventures, rest, and inspiration. Love ya.
