About this Event
203 S 9th St, Columbia, MO
Corey Feist is the brother-in-law of the late Dr. Lorna Breen, an emergency room physician who took her own life during the Covid-19 pandemic. He will be delivering the Ed Pellegrino Memorial Lecture as a part of the annual Health Ethics Conference. Physicians and health care providers suffer from a critically high degree of burnout and stress. Currently, more than one physician in the United States dies by suicide every day. The COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 has magnified the issues faced by frontline health care providers, yet many continue to suffer in silence out of fear of the professional stigma of seeking help.
