Five on Friday: Mental Health Among Frontline Clinicians

Another very full week here at Migrant Clinicians Network! Here are some updates from the world of public health and health justice that we thought you might have missed, chosen by MCN staff members.

Bending the Arc title screen

Weekly Win: This week, for our weekly win, MCN recommends that you take care of yourself! We shared a few movie recommendations among ourselves, including the Netflix original, “Bending the Arc,” which focuses on the journey and incredible work of Partners in Health. MCN’s own Del Garcia makes a very short picture cameo in grainy photos of Paul Farmer’s early work. Beyond her cameo, the film was praised by staff members as inspirational -- a much needed break from the news cycle. 




Have a safe and healthy weekend.
