Pamela Wible, M.D., is a family physician born into a family of physicians. Her parents warned her not to pursue medicine, but she followed her heart only to discover that to heal her patients she had to first heal her profession. So she decided to lead a series of town hall meetings throughout Lane County, Oregon where she invited her community to design their own ideal clinic. Open since 2005, Dr. Wible’s community clinic has sparked a movement in which citizens are designing ideal clinics nationwide. Her model is taught in medical schools and featured in Harvard School of Public Health’s Renegotiating Health Care, a text examining major trends in American healthcare. Dr. Wible is the co-author of two award-winning anthologies and the author of the bestseller, Pet Goats & Pap Smears: 101 Medical Adventures to Open Your Heart & Mind. She has been interviewed by CNN, ABC, CBS, and is a frequent guest on NPR.
