Good episode? Give it some love!
Cal gets together with Dr. Reagan Anderson for a look at the difficulties of being a doctor in this day and age. This is a conversation that everyone in America needs to hear. On average, one doctor commits suicide in the United States every day – which is the highest suicide rate of any profession. Reagan served as a surgeon for the U.S. military in Iraq and is now a dermatologist with a clinic in Colorado Springs – and he senses some profound overlaps. Even as health care provides daily miracles, Reagan shows Cal the difficulties and pressures created by the system, and why we need to rethink it. Your takeaway is to ask your doctor how she or he is doing. We need to care for the people care for us. Or else who is going to care for us in the future?
