On episode 265 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing career podcast, Keith interviews Dr. Kyle Jones, MD, a family physician who has written an important and moving memoir about being a healthcare professional with mental illness.

Dr. Jones is a Family Physician in Salt Lake City, Utah, and works at the University of Utah School of Medicine. He’s interested in improving the way that health care is delivered through a fully integrated, trans-disciplinary team. He uses his website to share his hopes and ideas for how this can be realized.

He’s also a father of four kids, has a beautiful wife, and is absolutely crazy about his Minnesota Twins!
