If you listen to this podcast, then you're probably familiar with our founder and frequent contributor, Dr. Donald Stader, and his fascination with the intersection of Emergency Medicine, opioids and Addiction Medicine. He is board certified in both specialties and is an active clinician in the ED that is constantly working to improve systems of best practice surrounding opioid uses there and in other specialties. In this episode of UnfilterED, Nick touches on these topics briefly before diving much deeper into the evolution of Don's perspectives on life and death in the context of his mother's recent passing due to COVID-19.

Tune in to hear Don's unfiltered personal account that can only be described as real, raw and relevant.
