This final episode of the three-part series for AAOS’ Orthopaedic Advocacy Week discusses reducing and preventing physician mental health issues. Following the moving story of Dr. Lorna Breen, an emergency physician who died by suicide while working on the front lines of the pandemic, the conversation features powerful perspectives on breaking down the stigma and increasing access to treatment—starting with passage of the legislation named in her honor, the Dr. Lorna Breen Health Care Provider Protection Act. (Rep. Susan Wild interview recorded on 7/14 and Corey Feist interview recorded on 7/27)
