Physician From Oklahoma City

Very few physician stories out of Oklahoma City this week following the F5 tornadoes there. I'd like to change that. I hope you can join me on Thursday, May 23, 2013, for Family Medicine Rocks Podcast Episode 305.

Dr. Rachel Franklin is an Associate Professor of Family Medicine at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. She lives with her family in the Oklahoma City area and we chatted about what it has been like there for the past few days. In an earlier blog post this week, I talked about how Dr. Franklin was live tweeting information from the ground in OKC just a few hours after the tornado.

I didn't know this, but Dr Franklin was living in the area there for the April 19, 1995 bombing of a federal building, the May 3, 1999 F5 tornado, and this week's May 20, 2013 F5 tornado. I can't even imagine being in the area of one of these events, but all three? Wow.

In the video above, I asked Dr. Franklin what people can do Right Now to help the people in her community. You can listen to our full interview on Thursday, May 23, 2013 for Family Medicine Rocks Podcast Episode 305. Visit my podcast page for more information. Hope to see you for the show!
