Louisville Medicine upcoming themes:
March – Physician Travelers (due 2/1) - Are you an avid traveler? We want to hear about your travel woes and wins! Share about your favorite destinations, give helpful tips for travel, and talk about what travel is like post-COVID-19.
April – Life After Medicine (due 3/1) - Of course there is life after medicine! Have you retired yourself – if so, what are you doing now? If you’re not retired yet, what do you plan to do in your life after medicine one day?
We are always welcoming new writers on these topics and so much more! Please reach out to Kathryn Vance at if you’d like to share your thoughts in an upcoming issue.
Influencers: what used to refer to those who inspired us or influenced our lives now has an entirely different meaning …and in this issue of Louisville Medicine, we’re focusing on both! We’re looking at not only those who got us to this point in medicine, but also those who are taking medicine by storm in the digital world. Dive into this interesting topic in this month’s magazine here.
Dr. Who
“I am aware that there are not many females of color in positions of power, and it is important for my patients, my mentees and people that I interact with to see my face in my position.” – Dr. Brittney Richardson, UofL Health sports medicine physician and this month’s Dr. Who. We are highlighting all the good Dr. Richardson is doing for future medical leaders at the ULSOM as well as UofL Athletics as a team physician for football and women’s basketball. Read more here.
