LOVE me some Dr. Love

TShakes,

 

Good Sunday to you all, I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend. TEDxSugarland(Women) was today, and it was curated by our very own Mee Ra. I particularly enjoyed it because one of my surgeons finally made it as a TEDx speaker (YAY). Dr. Love's talk ranged from looking for a solution to shorten the time for saving trauma patients, to bringing desperately needed attention on the health care of our veterans. His talk was inspirational and heartwarming.

I often tell surgical residents that although it is necessary for them to be humble, they also need to realize that they are the first people that we would want to see if we got into life threatening trouble. These surgeons live in a world that is often very lonely, difficult, and filled with unimaginable pressures. In our last "Second Sunday" meeting, Dr. Khan talked about how he "keeps his humanity" as he faces death day in and day out. I know that I have already shared Ed Gavagan's TED talk with you all; however, the theme fits perfectly with my mood, and this is my tribute to those that save (Thanks Crickets).

 

Regards,

 

JC
