    Kate Atkinson, MD, FAAFP, Medical Director

    of Atkinson Family Practice 


    Navigating the Complexities of the US Health Care System as a Family Physician and as a Woman Business Leader 


    Thursday, March 7, 2024 at 6 pm for wine and cheese.

    The speaker will follow at 6:30 pm.

    Dr. Kate Atkinson is a local Family Physician who started Atkinson Family Practice, a Medical Home in Amherst and Northampton where they care for patients of all ages.  

    Dr. Kate received her medical degree at University of Massachusetts Medical School in 1996, and completed her Family Medicine Residency at University of Massachusetts in Worcester. She began her career as a Registered Nurse in California, having received her BSN from California State University in Los Angeles. Her work in Oncology and Hospice spurred her interest to transition to becoming a physician.  Dr. Kate is a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians, and is Board-Certified by the American Board of Family Physicians.

    In over 20 years of practice, Dr. Kate has become increasingly frustrated with the US health insurance system.  She has been actively working to improve the experience directly for her patients, but also lobbying at the state and National level for health care reform. 

    Dr. Kate hopes to discuss the following: the complexities of navigating the US health insurance system to try to provide the best possible medical care to individuals in a community, her decision to offer a Concierge Medical practice option, the experience of being a woman business leader in a small town, and her hopes for a global change in our health care delivery system.   She hopes to engender a lively discussion on these topics

    This talk is part of the Thursday Evening Series featuring remarkable and accomplished local women and their personal journey of challenges and achievements.

    This event is free and open to the public.

    The Heaven & Earth Grocery Store by James McBride - Audiobook - Audible.com


    The Heaven & Earth Grocery Store

    by James McBride

    Wednesday, March 27th at 6:00PM

    In 1972, when workers in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, were digging the foundations for a new development, the last thing they expected to find was a skeleton at the bottom of a well. Who the skeleton was and how it got there were two of the long-held secrets kept by the residents of Chicken Hill, the dilapidated neighbourhood where immigrant Jews and African Americans lived side by side and shared ambitions and sorrows.

    As these characters' stories overlap and deepen, it becomes clear how much the people who live on the margins struggle and what they must do to survive. When the truth is finally revealed about what happened on Chicken Hill and the part the town's white establishment played in it, McBride shows us that even in dark times, it is love and community-heaven and earth-that sustain us.

    Haven't read it?  Don't worry just show up to get started.

    All are welcome!
