Palliative care is a delicate specialty. It balances somewhere between — and intertwined with — aggressive treatment of serious, often terminal, disease and end-of-life care. It’s concerned with patients living the rest of their life on their terms. For Dr. Gary Garner, the complicated nature of the field is what drew him in. “It seemed like a disenfranchised population,” he says. “You’ve got a serious disease that will alter the rest of your life. Here’s the treatment and I’ll see you in six months.
While serving an LDS Church mission in Australia, Dr. Steven Wallentine found he enjoyed the give-and-take that comes from communication. He also liked serving others. “It was there that I knew I wanted to make service my life and that I wanted to use my skills of listening and talking,” he says. “I knew I wanted to be in a people-oriented job.”His role as a medical oncologist allows him to serve those in real need and to create bonds that come from going through challenging experiences together.
Dr. Gordon Stock grew up just over the fence from Utah Valley Magazine’s Orem office and enjoys practicing medicine in the area he’s loved since childhood. But Dr. Stock was almost Engineer Stock. He started college by studying mechanical engineering, even working in the field before graduation. “I decided it wasn’t for me, so I began looking into other areas and was drawn to medicine and, specifically, orthopedic surgery,” he says.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
