Dr. G opens up about the struggles that made her realize she was the victim of burnout. After making significant changes – and dealing with the grief associated with losing a baby and working too much – she was able to once again love her career as an emergency medicine doctor…not to mention enjoying her husband and three children. Dr. G also provides us with the realities of bias – the bias she herself faces as a Black female doctor, and the bias her patients of color often face. She breaks down some of the most prevalent biases that cause great harm to people of color, and offers historical information about inequities related to our healthcare system. And make sure to stay tuned until the end to hear her talk about the joys of being a Jamaican immigrant!
