“As physicians, medicine is part of our being. It’s not something that disappears from our souls the moment we stop being active with it.” -Dr. Briones-Pryor says that even after retirement from medicine, we are always physicians, no matter where our paths lead. Read more about our physician members, now in retirement, that prove there is absolutely life after medicine.
Dr. Who
Dr. Amy Dwyer was the first woman in the U.S. to be certified by the American Society of Diagnostic & Interventional Nephrology and trained under two of the people who started the field. She started the Interventional Nephrology Center here in Louisville and is now Director of a unique, full-service center for all patients with kidney disease. Read more about her life and experiences in this month’s Dr. Who. 
Louisville Medicine upcoming themes:
July (due 6/1) – Overcoming Obstacles – What challenges did you face in getting to where you are today? What obstacles did you overcome in order to become the physician you are today? 
August (due 7/1) – Paying it Forward – How have you helped someone else? How have you made a difference in someone else being successful? Directly or indirectly? Advocacy work? Teaching students? A role in GLMS or other membership organization?
September (due 8/1) – What Makes You Happy? – Knowing that positive relationships keep us happier, what healthy life practices make you happy? Is it helping others? Advocacy? A favorite hobby? What do you enjoy?
October (due 9/1) – A Day in the Life – This time of year, we often think of dressing up in costumes and for a moment we get to be someone else. If you could be anyone else or dress up as someone else…who would that be and why? What would you do with one day in their shoes? Bonus: submit photos of your favorite/most creative Halloween costumes from over the years
To see a full list of upcoming themes including November 2023 – April 2024, check out the May issue of Louisville Medicine! Please reach out to Kathryn Vance at if you’d like to share your thoughts in an upcoming issue.
