Out in Public

Upcoming Events

Dr. Hepburn and Dr. Sealey are both very sought after speakers together as Wisequacks or as a single speaker specializing in different topics. They are not limited to health conferences at all and in fact are very adroit at custom making their “edutainment” lectures for any situation or any type of conference regardless of the theme. Their most popular talks include:

1) Medical Cannabis

“Smoke two of these and call me in the morning.” Not an easy prescription for a doctor to write illegibly.

With ”marijuana as medicine” entering the mainstream and the bloodstream of society, Drs. Hepburn and Sealey elaborate on the why, what, who and even the how of medical cannabis use. Many doctors, previously uncomfortable with medical marijuana, have now been placed front and center in the approval and prescribing of medical cannabis. This entertaining yet informative and instructional talk covers the breadth and breath of everything from benefits to myths to side effects of this often controversial medication.

2) Seven Numbers You Absolutely Need To Know To… Die Young

Die young… at an old age. This, in fact, is what we as doctors want you to do. But you, not your doctor, are responsible for your health. Presented in their famously fun yet very informative manner, the Wisequacks will inform you of exactly what you need to know to die young at 134. Knowledge is power, and with health being your greatest wealth, this lecture may be the most valuable investment you ever make.

3) Medical Mythinformation

In their most popular talk, Drs. Hepburn and Sealey meet Doctor Google head on and expose medical misinformation, confronting some of the commonest myths that are easily formed yet firmly held. This interactive discussion is upbeat, informative and full of dozens of health pearls that can improve everyday life.

4) The Future and The Past Together

In this roller coaster of a talk, Doctor Hepburn reveals how the amazing intersection of medicine and technologies are changing the way we live. With more progress made in medicine in the last two years than in the last 6000, we now balance precariously on the cusp of the remarkable third great era of medicine , the biomolecular, biointelligence revolution. Your smartphone has gone to medical school and soon prescribing apps may be more common than prescribing pills. Then in a shocking turnaround, Doctor Sealey takes you to a place 10,000 years away to reveal the art of caring, community and kava that they experienced in the remote jungles of the South Pacific.

5) 100 Ways To Enjoy Growing Older

Learn how to die young… at an old age.
