Guest Information

Episode Description

Dr. Karen Gedney is an Internal Medicine Specialist promoting her new book 30 Years Behind Bars: Trials of a Prison Doctor. She is a strong advocate for prison reform. The book dives into her personal experiences working in the prison system, her traumatic history with the inmates and her attempt to help them through their struggles and fears. She wrote the book to show the value of compassion, especially from a group where you would least expect it. She attempts to get across the point that anyone can experience trauma or be victimized, but that we have the power within us to decide whether we let it destroy/diminish us or make us stronger/more resilient. Gedney discusses with great vulnerability such diverse topics as overcoming trauma, dealing with; racism, mental illness, HIV, executions, cancer, dying, regret, the power of redemption, education and poetry.
