This memoir tells the story of Georgia physician Dhaval Desai's life during the Covid-19 pandemic. As a new father, frontline physician and healthcare leader on the brink of burnout, and a member of an ethnic minority in the South, his tale is marked by chaotic intersections. His commitment to fostering and advocating for humanity in medicine inspired him to write a personal narrative of his experience as a frontline physician during the COVID-19 pandemic, "Burning Out on the Covid Front Lines: A Doctor’s Memoir of Fatherhood, Race and Perseverance in the Pandemic". Along with sharing the story of his own struggles as a leader and healer during a time of intense pressure and uncertainty for countless doctors, nurses, and hospital workers, Dr. Desai calls attention to ongoing issues plaguing the healthcare system, including health inequality, racial injustice, an emphasis on metrics over compassion in treatment, and the alarming rate of burnout and suicide among healthcare professionals.
