“I wanted to take a moment to say that your talk at APIC was very effective and impactful. I must say I am pretty cynical about such talks, and my former boss was also very cynical but she could clearly see as you went through your own [burnout] scenario how she perfectly displayed all the symptoms you described and it helped her accept her new role and mourn less her old one.”

Frank Edward Myers III | Director Infection Prevention and Clinical Epidemiology at UC San Diego Health
