Welcome to RIMScast. Your host is Justin Smulison, Business Content Manager at RIMS, the Risk and Insurance Management Society.


Dr. Adrian Hyzler, the Chief Medical Officer at Healix International, is joining RIMScast once again in this episode to wrap up the two-part interview with Justin Smulison on the COVID-19 pandemic.
