Podcast

ABOUT THE PODCAST

LISTEN ON SPOTIFY

The Most Important Medicine is where physicians and healthcare professionals meet to discuss what trauma is and how it presents in primary care. Then, we talk about how to respond and mitigate trauma by building resilience and other buffering mechanisms that address adversity and build connection. We'll listen to physicians and healthcare providers tell their stories about how to bring humanness into medicine and transform how we think about medicine through relational leadership, early relational health and connection. It's truly, the MOST important medicine!
