The Local Lens is a public health podcast going inside one community's experience with the drug epidemic. Everyone in the town of Stanton, KY sees this drug issue differently from each other, either because of their personal lives or professional roles. This show aims to showcase those different perspectives through having honest, in-depth interviews with a new guest each episode.
This episode's guest is Mr. Scott Seitz, a nurse practitioner working in Powell County and the region for 20 years now. Over the years, he developed a heart for people with addiction, considering it part of his life's work to address the issue.
As a family practice nurse practitioner, Seitz is on the front line of health care. Because of this, he meets with patients of every kind of problem, including people with mental health problems. As time has gone on, he has realized how interconnected all these problems tend to be. This episode lets Mr. Seitz tell us how he sees things, and it is quite interesting.
These are our people, using our voices, telling our stories, because no one sees it like we do.
