You are only free when you realize you belong to no place -- you belong to every place -- no place at all. The price is high. The reward is great. --Maya Angelou

Resilient Threads: Weaving Joy and Meaning into Well-Being

Resilient Threads: Weaving Joy and Meaning into Well-Being

May 18, 2020-- Physician burnout, depression, and suicide are tearing at the fabric of our health care system, which Dr. Mukta Panda has witnessed firsthand, written about, and sought to address for years. She is a physician, speaker, and facilitator whose work seeks to transform the heart of patient care and medical education. In her latest book, Resilient Threads: Weaving Joy and Meaning into Well-Being, Dr. Panda gives voice to the exhaustion and offers courage for another way. As a physician and medical educator, she has fought to return human touch to healthcare. As a mother, she has committed -- and sometimes failed -- to balance the personal with the professional. And as an immigrant, she has clung to the wisdom of her family and faith in the face of discrimination and fear. By weaving stories of connecting to her patients, students, and colleagues with her own stories of belonging, she models how we can each thrive by creating community and self-awareness.
