Host Tim Rush welcomes Diane Shannon, MD, MPH, to discuss her decision to leave medicine and her perspectives on modern practice challenges such as the often times silent epidemic of burnout.

Dr. Shannon is a freelance writer who focuses on performance improvement in health care. She lives in Boston, MA.
