This really hit home...


"What we can do together is limitless. But first, we have to own what we’re doing now. We are not victims in and of a system. We are choosing to work in it. Owning this part of our story just may be the most empowering thing we can do. We can’t change that which we don’t own.

I don’t know where I’m going next, but just as burnout wasn’t my final stop, my role as an enabler will not be either.

Hi, my name is Melissa Kwak, MD. I’m a family physician who has chosen to stay in her current job employed within a dysfunctional health care system for the time being because I like the stability, I like my paycheck, and I’m scared to leave, afraid of the unknown. I am a health care system enabler, but this is far from the end of the story."
