Peter Brindley interviews Khairil Musa about Performing Arts, specifically dance, and how this complements his career in critical care.
Lucky Canadian Intensivist who is happiest whenever outdoors or laughing. Thinks life is about finding meaning and showing gratitude: even if I don’t always succeed. So pleased to be here sharing ideas and encouraging community.
