On episode 343 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Juli Boit, a nurse practitioner and published author whose story is one of love, compassion, faith, and the fight for social justice and healing in the face of great odds. Ms. Boit’s personal story and non-profit hospice in Kenya are truly models of love in action.
Juli Boit is an author, community builder, and non-profit leader working at the intersection of faith, global health, and human dignity. For 17 years Juli has lived and worked in Africa, founding and serving as International Director of Living Room International, a community-led nonprofit providing hospice and palliative care services to adults and children in Western Kenya.
Through her training as a Family Nurse Practitioner, Juli has combined her dual passions of healthcare and social justice into a unique expression of love that is providing desperately needed services in an underserved community. That said, Juli would be the first to add she’s the one who has been loved the most by her patients and neighbors in her home village of Kipkaren — most notably by Titus, her Kenyan husband, and their children Sharon, Alice, Ella, Geoffrey, and Ryan.
Juli’s new book From Beyond the Skies, releasing this September, chronicles her journey of moving to Kenya, founding LRI, and becoming the adoptive parent of three children with Sickle Cell Disease.
