Louisville Medicine upcoming themes:
February – Married to Medicine (due 1/1) - We want to hear from all of those couples – from engaged, to newlyweds, to longtime couples. What are the pros and cons of being married to another physician? Have a great “night out” idea you can share with your colleagues?
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?
