Today I am so excited to bring you an interview! It’s been a long time since I’ve done one, and my guest on this episode is someone I reached out to immediately after hearing her speak because I just knew I had to have her on this podcast to share her great information with all of you. Aparna Iyer is an adjunct assistant professor at UT Southwestern in Dallas, a board-certified psychiatrist, and a psychodynamic psychotherapist who has developed a special interest in physician mental health—particularly as it relates to loneliness. She joins me today to talk about why it’s so important to build connections with our fellow physicians, the mental and physical health issues that arise from loneliness, and how to protect yourself from this dangerous emotion.
