National Physician of the Year Awards

Since 2008 I have been the executive media producer of The National Physician of the Years Awards - presented by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd.  In that role I tell the stories of people whose creativity, insight and integrity have revolutionized modern medicine and affected the lives of millions of people throughout the world. I have had the privilege of conducting in-depth interviews with these extraordinary men and women exploring some of the most profound questions about life, death and what it means to heal.
