The issues may be complex, but the format of WIHI is simple. It's 60 minutes, offered live via WebEx, every other week. There's a host, three to four carefully chosen guests, and you — with your questions and comments. All we ask is that you register for the program in advance. You can join the program live — via computer is best — and, afterwards, you can always find the program and all the related resources on IHI.org. WIHI is also archived ​and available as a podcast on iTunes. 
 
Your host is IHI's Madge Kaplan, who brings a wealth of journalistic experience to WIHI from her years reporting on health care for public radio and as IHI's Director of Communications since 2004. Madge is known for her ability to make important knowledge available and accessible for broad audiences and to create shared spaces for lively and enriching discussions, such as WIHI. ​
