Insights from Experience: A Physician's Perspective

"This lecture addresses the challenging reality that some families face devastating outcomes, outcomes for which we, as healthcare providers, are often underprepared. Despite over 20 years of practice, I still find myself at a loss for words in these situations. This video is part of our collaborative effort to bridge these gaps in our education and empower us with the tools to better support our patients and each other, both physically and psychologically."

-  Stephen Thung, MD, MSCI, Chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Yale New Haven Health Bridgeport Hospital
