#7 Dr. Drew Helmer
Join Shree Nadkarni as he goes through life, testing ways to be happier, healthier, and finding his own passion through interviewing interesting people in the world.
In which Shree talks to Dr. Drew Helmer, the Director at the War Related Illness & Injury Study Center at the Veterans Administration New Jersey Health Care System. He is the author of Sex After Service: A Guide for Military Service Members, Veterans, and the People Who Love them. In this episode, I just wanted to ask him about how he gets so much done in a day and what future he thinks medicine is headed towards in the VA as well as in private practices across the US. Also, it was a great conversation about his journey into medicine and how the power of circumstances really shaped his career trajectories from a museum curator when he was very little, to a genetics researcher, and finally, a physician.
