Inspired by Students, Blessed by Patients

Last week, I had the opportunity to speak with pre-health students at a college campus. It was a blast to be in that environment, sharing stories and information sprinkled with hope to young people with big dreams. They were insightful, inspiring, and full of curiosity.

Driving home, I kept thinking about their energy and excitement, and this made me think back to the many blessings I've accumulated over 25 years in medicine.

I loved my time with them so much and wrote about it here.
Enjoy it, and feel free to share!












Joyfully,

Pursuing Wellness with Future Attorneys

Last week, I had the very meaningful opportunity to discuss wellness, mental health, and burnout prevention with the students and some faculty members at A&M College of Law. It was a very special day that brought back many memories of my mom's days in law school while I was in high school. It also made me realize that, regardless of our different areas of work, we are all living during very stressful times ... and we all need to support one another, be patient with each other, and perhaps also be kinder than necessary. Wouldn't that make the world a much better place?

We all have a story, and we are all going through situations others may not even know about. The need for empathy and compassion has never been greater.

I wrote about the special day HERE. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Joyfully,
Dr. Mari
