The Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes’ Foundation and Physician Suicide Awareness

May 4, 2022

Death by suicide is now twice the national average (physicians and nurses) prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes’ Foundation’s mission is to increase awareness, advance solutions, and promote advocacy at the Federal, state, and local levels. In this episode, Mike Sacopulos interviews J. Corey Feist, JD, MBA, the Co-Founder of the Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes’ Foundation. They discuss the mission of the Foundation, Dr. Lorna Breen’s tragic story, and review sources available at https://drlornabreen.org/

Corey recently served as the Chief Executive Officer of the University of Virginia Physicians Group, the medical group practice of UVA Health comprised of 1200+ physicians and advanced practice providers. The Foundation has been doing good work, as evidenced by the recent passage of The Dr. Lorna Breen Health Care Provider Protection Act.
