Healing Our Healers Through the Patient-Doctor Relationship: Speaker and student presentations from BRI’s 5th Annual Leadership Conference in St. Louis, MO.
In a humble conference room in St. Louis, medical student attendees heard eight speakers from diverse backgrounds enlighten them about the promise of healthcare freedom and protecting the patient-doctor relationship, and showed them—as future doctors—how they can be excited again about a positive future in medicine.
On Aug. 20, thousands of people came together across the country to raise awareness of medical student and physician suicide and depression. Physicians rank among the highest in suicides; and, we lose an average of 400 medical students—roughly the size of an entire medical school—each year, to suicide. The event’s main organizer, Lacey Kohlmoos, discusses how the events went, and what other projects are in the offing.
