Helen M Shearer, MD

Why did you choose Moscow, ID?

My husband, James, and I chose Moscow because it is a safe, small town – a great place to raise a family.

Why did you choose family practice as your specialty?

I get to see people and families over a long period of time, helping them through transitions and changes.  It is a privilege to see people grow, change and live life.  I get to celebrate successes as well as help through the hard times.  Even in hardship and loss, I am amazed how people persevere and heal.

Family, Hobbies and Interests

I am married and have 2 sons.  I love running and I usually participate in 1-2 half-marathons a year.  I also ran 2 full marathons in 1992 and 2010.

I am passionate about medical missions and most recently went to Rwanda in 2014 with the Africa New Life Ministries.  I also went on a medical mission to Zimbabwe in 2012 with TEAM.

Presently, I am the volunteer Medical Director of Palouse Care Network.
