82. Svetlana Chamoun - Tackling The Business Of Burnout

Your health may be at risk because your doctor’s health is being systemically undermined. Svetlana Chamoun is a cardiologist who practices lifestyle medicine and is raising awareness for burnout in the medical system. Western healthcare as a whole has evolved in an unfortunate direction, fueled by profit over compassion. Doctors are incentivized by business models that reward treating larger numbers of patients with expensive procedures and medications. Due to these conditions, many medical professionals are suffering from mental health issues and dangerous degrees of burnout. Remember to be kind and compassionate to your doctors, they are humans too!
