This week, we’d like you to meet Mark Coffin! Mark Coffin is a Physician Relations Manager here at KPG Healthcare and a great one at that! Mark is one of those people that makes coming to work everyday a breeze in the park, so we thought we’d give you the chance to get to know him like we do!
Here are some fun facts about Mark Coffin:
What’s your favorite thing about being a healthcare recruiter?
I love how unique the healthcare recruiting world is. There are new challenges and solutions on a daily basis!
What differentiates KPG?
Obviously- We’re the locals! Nobody knows the West Coast and what it has to offer better than us!
Tell us your favorite memory from being a part of the KPG team?
It’s too difficult to single out one event, but every time our team gets together outside of the office, my face is sore from excessive laughter.
Tell us about a Provider that made a difference in your life.
I won’t name drop, but a certain medical director of a group based in Southern California took time out of his busy schedule to discuss a potential partnership between our companies. During these discussions, he was willing to educate me on aspects of Hospital Medicine from a Business perspective, and the knowledge has been extremely useful since. Thanks Dr. ******!
What, in your opinion, can an applicant do to stand out?
I personally love unique CV’s. When I see one that visually stands out amongst the masses, I’m much more likely to think of that applicant in the immediate future.
Where’s your favorite place to travel?
The desert! I’m always interested in a trip to Joshua Tree.
Let’s talk food. What’s your favorite cuisine?
My favorite is always changing, but I’m definitely craving Mac & Cheese at this very moment.

As the temperatures begin to slowly drop and the wind starts rustling the colorful leaves of the trees, Autumn comes with a not-so-fun gift: The Flu. Kids are back in school and are bringing home all types of germs, while office environments can be a fun place for the Flu to make it’s rounds. That said, we’ve put together a guide on how to approach Flu Season like a pro!
One of the most common pieces of advice that doctors have for preventing the flu is getting a flu shot. While the flu shot doesn’t 100% guarantee that you won’t get the flu, Dr. Brandies in an article from the NY Times states that “the vaccine’s [also] been shown to reduce the severity of influenza, [while] it also reduces colds and other illnesses in young, healthy working adults”.
Shots don’t feel good, but neither does the flu!
Other precautions you’ll want to take in avoidance of the flu are to:
Although you have done everything in your power to try and prevent the flu, you were no match to defeat it. Now, you’re (hopefully) at home and looking for a speedy recovery. Here are some things that will help speed things up:
After you’ve fought long and hard to get rid of it, you finally overcame the flu and are finally starting to feel like a functioning human being again.
You’ll want to get rid of the flu once and for all and to do that, you’ll want to do a power clean around the house.
Here’s what you’ll want to make sure to disinfect, throw in the wash or even throw out after the virus is out of your system.
We sincerely hope you and your loved ones don’t come into contact with the flu at all this holiday season.
Remember to make your way to the doctor’s office if your flu begins to escalate. The KPG Healthcare team wishes you a fantastic and safe weekend ahead!
Until next time!
