From a young age, we see the power of a decision – even the smallest decisions can have a huge impact. In this issue, our physician members look at the decisions that have guided their careers, from employment type to specialty choice, and the effect of those decisions. Read more in this month’s Louisville Medicine here.
Dr. Who
Dr. Todd Purkiss has always had an eye for, well, the eye. First pursuing his PhD in sensation and visual processing, he later went back to medical school and finished with a fellowship in medical retina. Now with Retina Associates of Kentucky, he is right where he was always meant to be. Read more about his journey and why he says he’s a “retina nerd” in this month’s Dr. Who.
Louisville Medicine upcoming themes:
April – due 3/1 – Advocating for Each Other & Building Community – As physicians focused on wellness for all, we advocate for our patients, our neighbors, and our community every day. How are you practicing day-to-day advocacy in your practice or your personal life? How can we use this to build community? How can we navigate this in today’s world?
May – due 4/1 – Annual Report – You’re encouraged to write on any topic you’d like!
