Dr Izzy Smith is one of the hosts of this podcast, so we thought it was fitting to go 'behind the scrubs' and share Izzy's story. Izzy is an Endocrinology Doctor with a passion for sharing health advice that is easy to digest. She is also a Movember Ambassador, mental health advocate and a running enthusiast!
In this week's episode of Behind the Uniform, Izzy opens up about what it was like losing her Dad at such a young age and the long-lasting psychological trauma grief can have on a child. Izzy also talks about the difficulties junior doctors can face when being confronted with death, and why reflecting on past experiences can help you get through some challenging times.
We really hope you enjoy getting to know more about the wonderful Dr Izzy Smith, and you can follow Izzy on Instagram @doctorizzyksmith.
