Announcing: The Color of Atmosphere by Maggie Kozel

We proudly announce the release of a new memoir by Maggie Kozel called The Color of Atmosphere: One Doctor’s Journey In and Out of Medicine.

The book details Maggie’s story and the route of her medical career with warmth, humor, and above all, honesty. As we follow her from her idealistic days as a devoted young pediatrician, through her Navy experience with universal health coverage, and on into the world of private practice, we see not only Maggie’s reverence for medical science, and her compassion for her patients, but also the widening gap between what she was trained to do and what is eventually expected of her.

“A rare, intimate portrayal of one pediatrician’s journey to become a doctor and her heart-wrenching decision years later to eventually leave medicine. Told with candor and wit, Maggie Kozel’s memoir is a powerful reminder of the complex forces that shape medical practice today.”—Eliza Lo Chin, MD, MPH, President, American Medical Women’s Association, and Editor, This Side of Doctoring: Reflections from Women in Medicine

“Dr. Kozel captures perfectly the malaise that has struck American medicine in general and primary care in particular. The chronicle of this intelligent and committed physician—who is frustrated at every turn as she tries to find satisfaction in a profession to which she had expected to dedicate her life—is a powerful indictment of our current system of medical care. We should have done better by her.—Beach Conger, MD, physician and author, Bag Balm and Duct Tape: Tales of a Vermont Doctor

Watch a video, below, of Maggie describing her journey and discussing the book:
