Hanging Up the White Coat: Doctors Who Went in a Different Direction



Laurel Hill East

How would you react if you knew that your doctor would really rather be practicing law? Or managing multiple plantations? Or exploring the Arctic? Or running a Gilbert and Sullivan troupe?

“Hanging Up the White Coat” examines people who once examined people, but who gave it up to follow their true passions.

It’s a fever dream anyone could enjoy!
