Health care professionals have long experienced high levels of stress and burnout, and COVID-19 has only exacerbated the problem. The film DO NO HARM, a groundbreaking film exposing the hidden epidemic of suicide and burnout among physicians has had tremendous impact in the medical community and beyond through powerful film screenings and panel discussions at medical schools, hospitals, conferences and theaters across the country.
