Vivek Murthy: To Be a Healer

Vivek Murthy: To Be a Healer

Apr 14, 2023-- "We need a modicum of vitality to simply be alive in this time. And were in an enduringly tender place. The mental health crisis that is invoked all around, especially as we look to the young, is one manifestation of the gravity of the post-2020 world. How to name and honor this more openly? How to hold that together with the ways weve been given to learn and to grow? Who are we called to be moving forward? Dr. Vivek Murthy is a brilliant, wise, and kind companion in these questions. Hes a renowned physician and research scientist in his second tenure as U.S. Surgeon General. And for years, hes been naming and investigating loneliness as a public health matter, including his own experience of that very human condition. It is beyond rare to be in the presence of a person holding high governmental office who speaks about love with ease and dignity -- and about the agency to be healers that is available to us all."
