21. Rethinking Medicine w/ Tim Cruickshank

Navy SEAL turned PA on a mission
7

Tim Cruickshank is a retired Navy SEAL with an extensive and diverse military and civilian medicine background spanning over thirty years. He now works as a full-time Physician’s Assistant. He’s also spent over a decade as a caregiver navigating his wife’s cancer diagnosis and treatment. This personal experience, combined with his professional expertise, has given him a unique perspective on our healthcare system that, in my estimation, is vital for people to hear. It aligns with the conclusions I’ve come to through my journey. Even though the opinions he expresses here don’t represent official guidance, I feel his credentialing still gives them authority beyond my own as a mere chronic illness sufferer. Tim is a dear friend I’ve known for a long time, and I’m so grateful he was willing to come on the podcast and share his story.

Lastly, he’s also an entrepreneur who founded and runs two start-ups, Bonefrog Coffee and Bonefrog Cellars. Beyond just selling great coffee and wine, Tim is using these companies to give back. You can learn more about them and their mission at the websites above.

RARE SENSE aims to openly talk about all aspects of mental health, including difficult discussions with practitioners, sufferers, and others. Join us as we explore the landscape of mental treatment and training, all in the uncommon pursuit of mind fitness.
The podcast is hosted by Chris Irwin, a Navy SEAL veteran who struggled for over a decade with chronic mental and physical illness after serving in the military. Chris utilizes the expertise he gained during that journey to dive deep into tough topics while being completely vulnerable and open about his own experiences and struggles. These are the conversations about mental health we must have in the modern age.
