Dr. Keri Gardner came to the People's Health Clinic as a volunteer to provide follow-up care to patients who had been seen in the Emergency Department. Since she is an emergency physician herself, she knows that patients can struggle to get a timely appointment to be rechecked after discharge from the Emergency Department. She was inspired to join People's Health Clinic after meeting Dr. Easter at the Summit County vaccination clinic, who as a volunteer, expressed how special the People's Health Clinic staff are and the patients they serve. Dr. Gardner was convinced and became a volunteer physician herself. In addition to her work as an Emergency Physician, Dr. Gardner is a public health specialist and an avid hiker and whitewater rafter. Her free time is spent training search and rescue K9s with Utah Search Dogs. She has worked all over the country and even at the US polar station in Antarctica, but has settled in Park City with her husband, Rob, because of the beauty and community spirit.
