PODCAST: 1 in 5 Series: I Leaned In: One Family Doc's Story of Treating Opioid Use Disorder

At the California Academy of Family Physicians, we know that Addiction Medicine is Family Medicine. In our latest series 1 in 5, we bring you stories of doctors - and their patients - who have worked together to reduce the harm done by opioid use disorder (OUD). These brief stories will bring you into the hearts and minds of our guests. We hope that this will inspire you to do everything in your power to bring medical attention to the OUD patients in your practice. 

1 in 5 Series: I Leaned In: One Family Doc’s Story of Treating Opioid Use Disorder

In this episode we meet with a leader in family medicine. A practicing family doc and health system administrator who shares his journey toward treating OUD.


Dr. Jay W. Lee, MD, MPH, FAAFP is a board-certified family physician who sees patients at KCS Health, a community health center serving patients who have immigrated or who have been impacted by the carceral system in Orange County, CA. He also serves as medical director at Integrated Health Partners, a clinically-integrated network serving 350,000 patients insured mostly by Medicaid whose medical home is at one of 9 community health centers in 3 counties.

Dr. Lee co-founded the Family Medicine Revolution hashtag: #FMRevolution, a grassroots social media movement giving the power of telling family medicine’s story back to family physicians and building a global community of thought leaders.

Our interviewer, Dr. Tipu Khan, MD, FAAFP, FASAM is the Medical Director of the Ventura County Backpack Medicine Group, Primary Care Hepatitis C Eradication Project.
