Raised humbly in a small town in rural Tennessee, Dr. Hurt credits her academic success and professional achievements to a stern and loving great-grandmother, a host of self-discipline, and an overwhelming motivation to help all individuals live their best healthiest and happiest life. Dr. Hurt sees on a daily basis people die from preventable disease in the hospital. Every month Dr. Hurt has to say to countless families, “Sorry for your loss.”
Dr. Hurt wants to be able to say those words less by empowering patients to understand when they are in trouble. Patients believe their deaths don’t affect the physician. Dr. Hurt strongly disagrees. That is why she started by writing a Mini Medical Book-Mini Book 1: How the Body Works and When to Seek Medical Attention.” Packed with health and wellness advice, Mini Medical- Mini Book 1 was designed as a blueprint to help manage and promote good health. Combined with heavy social media, Dr. Kiki Hurt’s daily Health Tid Bits, has become an interactive forum where readers seek medical advice on everyday health questions and concerns; “Medicine, Life, and a little Laughter” fosters the principles of good health self-management and self-care. The GlobalMusic4 Life project and everything you will see in the future from Dr. Kiki Hurt is because death does affect physicians.
Dr. Hurt currently resides in both New York and Los Angeles.
I have spent my life studying the human body and how it functions. I have spent most of my career managing the care of acutely dying patients whether they be in the intensive care unit or the operating room. My goal at this point is simple. I want to prevent patients from being the victim of preventable medical situations. I believe if you understand your body, you will be able to better take care of your life and live life well. Thus, I am taking all the knowledge and experience I have and sharing it with the world. I am trying to demystify the human body and the disease that affect it. I want people to be so comfortable with their body and how it works that you are no longer intimidated to have conversations with a doctor or a nurse. If you can understand this ‘Jill ran down the hill’ then you can understand your body. I dare you to be in charge of your life. Dr. Kiki Hurt
