We're here to remind you.
These are the objective facts and evidence-based research that is totally devastating. Subjectively, we've all been through one or all of these experiences in our collective 40 years of practice. We've been on the front lines of the healthcare world since 2003. We've been abused, yelled at, questioned our place, anxious, angry, burned out, depressed and suicidal. We know what it's like to be taken into a room and told that we're not producing enough, fast enough, good enough. And somehow, through the help of our sisters, rock bottoms and community, we've been able to get through it all and come out shining on the other side. We transformed our powerlessness to power. We've turned our hopelessness into hope. We've created a life and a practice that we absolutely love and now, we're here to help light the way back to the art and heart of medicine.
We believe, healthy healers equal a healthy world. Join us in the movement.
