Download MP3
In a recent episode of the MGMA Women in Healthcare podcast, host Adrienne Lloyd sat down with Dr. Lucy McBride to delve into her transformative journey toward adopting a holistic approach to medicine. Dr. McBride shared insights on the importance of understanding a patient's complete story and life experiences, emphasizing the need to go beyond lab results and vital signs to provide comprehensive care.

Dr. McBride discusses transitioning from a traditional medical practice to one that takes a whole-person view of health. She emphasizes understanding how childhood traumas, relationships, and lifestyle factors influence physical and mental well-being. Lloyd and McBride discuss concepts like acceptance, agency, and conceptualizing health as a process rather than an outcome. McBride promotes a team-based approach and gives patients the tools to take control of their health journeys.
