Ben Smith wanted to take a different path to practicing medicine, one that would keep him in Southeast Kansas and allow him to do the most good for his neighbors.
It led him to recently becoming a nurse practitioner for The Family Physicians, where he sees patients at the clinic at 1408 East St., as well as at the Allen County Jail. Hes also a new member of the U.S. Air National Guard and a family man with a young son.
And thats after years working as a nurse at Allen County Regional Hospital, and as a past director at Greystone Assisted Living, while also going to school to earn a masters degree.
