Presenter: Clark Gaither
I am a writer, speaker, podcast producer and personal coach for physicians and other professionals who suffer from burnout. Also, I have enjoyed a career in medicine for the past 22 years as part of an office-based family practice in Goldsboro, NC.
I have given hundreds of lectures up and down the east coast to physicians, professional groups and the public on various topics such as physician burnout, addiction and recovery issues, hypertension, cholesterol disorders, smoking cessation, and various therapeutic pharmaceutical agents.
I planned and helped to establish a free clinic in Wayne County and Goldsboro, NC, now in its thirteenth year. It is a mobile medical unit which travels to 19 different locations in the county each month in order to provide free care to those that have no resources to obtain medical care otherwise. All the care on the mobile medical unit is free, all the labs are free and almost all of the patient’s medications are free. A satellite clinic was opened at the Family-Y to handle all of the demand. These two clinics see a total of 800+ patients each month for acute care and ongoing chronic disease management. With a staff of sixteen and an annual budget of $950,000.00+, it is the second busiest free clinic in North Carolina.
I am past chair of the North Carolina Physicians Health Program and currently sit on its Compliance Committee. It is a program devoted to helping troubled physicians recover from alcoholism, drug addiction, gambling addiction, patient boundary violations, and other behavioral disorders.
In 2002, I was named Family Physician of the Year by the North Carolina Academy of Family Physicians. In 2010, I became a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians.
In my play time, I enjoy woodworking, amateur astronomy, scuba diving and travel. I also enjoy collecting rocks, minerals, and meteorites.
