This content was provided by Dr. Dunham "My first role model was my mother. I remember as early as age 5, I always wanted to be a doctor. My mom grew up in Chicago, and she was a person who was very interested in taking care of people, helping people who were ill. In those days, there were not a lot of opportunities for women in medicine, so she went into nursing. But she was really my role model, and she's the person I looked up to the most and inspired me to try to help people when they're ill. It's important for us to be nonthreatening. For example, if you come in and - a lot of patients I have are doing unhealthy things. Maybe they drink too much. They smoke too much. They're overweight. And so I think if you take the approach that you need to stop doing this, that's stressful for people. And so, while that may be true, I think the better way to phrase it is say, If you're able to stop smoking - and we'll give you the tools to help you stop smoking - we can really add years to your life. I think it's our responsibility to make it as unthreatening as possible - all the while, though, trying to address the issues that need to be addressed that will help them live a longer and a healthier life."
