Morgan McGarvey (KY State Senator) after shadowing Dr. Frank Burns: “One thing I was struck by was not only how complex it is for a patient to understand what’s covered, but how complex it is for the doctors. Really, we put far too much of that burden on them.” David Nicholson (Jeff. County Circuit Court Clerk) after shadowing Dr. Frank Martin: “As a lay person, I’m walking away knowing that we have a lot of great physicians in this community.” Cynthia Knapek (Leadership Louisville President) after shadowing Dr. Todd Purkiss: “It occurs to me that to be a really good doctor you have to be really good at your people skills.” Also pictured, GLMS President Bruce Scott, MD David Henley (VP & Chief Compliance Officer for Passport Health Plan) after shadowing Dr. Rajesh Sheth: “Dr. Sheth has patients who have been coming to him not for two years, but 20 or 30 years. They walk through the door, and he knows what’s going on with them before they say anything.” Hal Hedley (Ronald McDonald House Exec. Director) after shadowing Dr. Josh Meier: “To walk into a surgery room and to see a six month old baby on a surgery table under anesthesia is very eye opening. That gave me an absolutely new perspective about the families we serve in the Ronald McDonald House.” 2014 WEAR THE WHITE COAT ALUMNI: Todd Bradon - United Parcel Service Neil Budde - The Courier-Journal Ron Crimm - State Representative Barry Denton - Louisville Metro Police Foundation Rob Frederick - Brown-Forman Corporation Mike Guyer - Wood - Muhammad Ali Center Hal Hedley - Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kentuckiana David Henley - Passport Health Plan Ja'Nel Johnson - WFPL News Jim King - Metro Council Cynthia Knapek - Leadership Louisville Angela Leet - Metro Council Morgan McGarvey - State Senator David Nicholson - Jefferson County Circuit Court Clerk Susan Overton - Greater Louisville, Inc.
