What does it look like when a physician stands not just for nursing as a profession--but WITH nursing? In this episode, we interview Dr. Chris Keefer, an Emergency Physician and fellow podcaster who penned an Open Letter to Political and Healthcare leaders signed by over 700 emergency physicians. He also helped mobilize and marched with frontline nurses.
