Five on Friday: The Crisis of Physician Burnout


Some of our MCN staff have already headed out the door for a longer Independence Day weekend. As we slice wedges of watermelon and shuck the corn on the cob this weekend, let’s take a moment to consider the hundreds of people tending the fields in hot conditions through the holiday weekend to fill our plates, most of whom are immigrants to the US. We believe in our country and our ability to provide health justice for all. As we continue to fight for health justice, we send our gratitude to our clinical network for their dedication to people who are often overlooked. Here are five recommendations from MCN staff that were shared in the last two weeks. We hope they aid you in your work in health justice.
