She says she loves emergency medicine because, “It is a microcosm of society as a whole. As an ER doctor I treat all the medical problems and social ills we see in modern life, problems related to obesity, smoking, teen pregnancy, drug abuse, mental illness and domestic violence. And while the emergency room allows me to affect change only one patient at a time, when I speak on TV and radio or write about these issues I get to affect a broader change, impacting health throughout a whole community!” Dr. Leigh feels fortunate to be able to use her medical expertise in this way.
