Seals in Motion

A video of some of those seals I mentioned several days ago on a sand bar just off of Head of the Meadow Beach in Truro. The cows are quick to head to the water when approached. The bulls stand firm!

Hi Paul!
I am currently stydying your HBS Case Study on Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) as part of my graduate school course work.

I am a graduate student at Georgia Institute of Technology (GA Tech)in Atlanta, Georgia pursuing an Executive MBA. I find your professional style of managenent to be very refreshing. Like you I am no MD, but more forcus on technology management. I have worked excusively in technology intensive environment within healthcare institutions and/or for businesses that focuses on the healthcare industry.

Your HBS case study will help me to meet the many new challenges that I am about to take one - one of the most challenging job in my career to-date. In a few weeks, I will take on a newly created position with the state of Georgia as the Director of the Office of Healthcare IT and Transparency (HITT).

The office of HITT is housed within Georgia's Department of Community Health. My office will be responsible for leading the strategic efforts of the state of Georgia for health information technology adoption and health information exchange to improve health care delivery for providers, health care professionals and consumers.

Thanks for the inspiration and keep up the great work!

Michael W. Craige - Atlanta, GA

Hi Paul,

My wife and I visited this beach last Friday. As advertised, there were over 100 seals on the sandbar just offshore.

Thanks for inspiring us to drive the extra 15 minutes past Wellfleet - well worth it!

Yesterday afternoon I went to Head of the Meadow and sat there watching the seals for about a half hour. It was fascinating. Thanks so much for the tip.
I really enjoyed it.

Thank you for sharing the information about the seals at Head of the Meadow beach - they are truly wonderful to watch. The National Park Service asks people not to approach them, and so I hope your video will not encourage people to do that. I sat on the shore across from the sandbar, and that did not seem to faze them a bit. Binoculars gave me a very up-close-and-personal view of them and their amusing interactions.
