Louisville Medicine upcoming themes:
November (due 10/1) – Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone – It’s been said that “life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” When is a time that you stepped outside your comfort zone?  What steps did you take to get there, how did it happen and were you thankful that you did?
December (due 11/1) – Making a Change – As the year draws to an end, think about celebrating someone who has promoted change and innovation in the health care industry. Who has made an impact in driving change? What innovations have you seen that have inspired how you practice medicine? What innovations have inspired you to make a change for yourself in 2024?
January (due 12/1) – The Power of the Decision – Small decisions can have a big impact. Was it choosing your specialty? Choosing employed vs. private? Did you start your own practice? What about bedside medical decisions? How do you make these decisions and what impact have they had, or will they have in the future?
Please reach out to Kathryn Vance at if you’d like to share your thoughts in an upcoming issue.
