Five on Friday: Trauma and Exhaustion Among Health Care Workers

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Don’t wait til the last minute – make sure you know where you’re buying your fair trade chocolate, to ensure that the goodies for your loved ones aren’t produced by child labor.

On to Five on Friday, where we chronicle some pieces that MCN staff have shared in the world of health justice:
