As internal medicine physician in Kansas, Dr. Sapna Shah-Haque knows a thing or two about burnout. It’s something she has faced more than once. Her colleagues have also experience it. Burnout can take many different forms, including suicide.
Until the mental health of medical staff can be addressed through the system, Dr. Shah-Haque set out on a journey to help physicians and healthcare professionals realize they are not alone. Her path took her to find ways to help herself, and her colleagues, reclaim their humanity while they continued to practice medicine.
She is the co-author of a book, Thriving After Burnout, and is the host of the Worthy Physician Podcast.
