There has been an epidemic of mental illness within the COVID 19 pandemic.  Rates of depression, anxiety and burnout have sky rocketed and we physicians are not immune to the adverse mental health effects of the work we do. In fact we are in the perfect storm - arduous, demanding work during which we often bear witness to countless tragedies that leave us prone to mental stress.

In this episode we sit down to talk to J. Corey Feist, J.D., MBA, Cofounder of the Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes Foundation about the tragic suicide of his sister-in-law Dr. Lorna Breen in 2020 at the height of the COVID 19 pandemic.  Are you ready to move from exhausted and overwhelmed to Confident & Balanced in your Career and Life?

Ep #59: #ThisIsOurShot, But What About Our Kids with Dr. Petra McEwan
As the country opens back up and families plan summer vacations what should we keep in mind for young children who can't yet get vaccinated against COVID-19? In this episode we discuss COVID 19 vaccinations for children with pediatrician Dr. Petra McEwan. She is a Women in White Coats Writer's Fellow and recently wrote an article titled "#ThisIsOurShot But What About Our Children" for the Women in White Coats blog. As a mother of 5 she shares her professional recommendations as well as personal choices regarding travel and what she feels safe allowing her unvaccinated under 12 year old children to do.  We don't want to see women doctors burn out. Instead we want to see them burn bright. That is exactly why we created the Women in White Coats Physician Wellness Program to help women doctors overcome feelings of burnout and overwhelm, rekindle their passion for medicine and create better work-life integration and more fulfilling relationships. We invite you to join us in a unique 3 month long journey back to yourself as we dive deep into the root of burnout and help you find more joy and fulfillment in all areas of your life. You'll even earn CME! Click here to learn more We just had our 2021 Women in White Coats Virtual Conference and Wellness Retreat and it was amazing! Women doctors left feeling uplifted and empowered and a part of our community while also earning 11.5 CME credits. If you missed it, don't worry.
