On episode 322 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Kim Evans, an Advanced Practice Nurse and author with over 42 years of clinical experience, who is truly interested in helping people achieve their optimal health of mind, body, and spirit, as well as fixing our broken disease-care system.
While working as a critical care specialist in the mid 90’s, Kim realized that 75% of the patients in the intensive care unit had illnesses that could have been prevented. From that moment on, she dedicated herself to help stop preventable chronic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Kim is one of the founders and owner of the Institute for Integrative Medicine in Louisville, KY. She is an avid writer and speaker, inspiring people to discover their power within, transform their lives, and BE their best self. She practices what she preaches by eating healthy, exercising regularly, and meditating/praying daily.
On this episode, Keith and Kim discuss the APO E gene and why it’s so important; nurse-driven integrative solutions to healthcare; how and why we work in a broken disease-care system that doesn’t seem to value prevention and wellness; and so much more!
