Good Samaritan Physician Receives Recognition
Emergency physician Errin Weisman D.O. was awarded “2017 Outstanding Young DO” by the Indiana Osteopathic Association at the Annual Winter Conference on December 9 in Indianapolis. She was nominated for this award because of her commitment to advocate for change in the health care system by presenting lectures across the state of Indiana and authentically speaking and writing about her own personal experience with burnout. Dr. Weisman is a fierce advocate for better health and wellness among health care professionals and working mothers.
“I am extremely honored by this award and I hope to continue to keep speaking out about physician burnout, depression andsuicidal thoughts, particularly among female physicians,” said Dr. Weisman. “I also want to continue my work on how we can cultivate a better culture of wellness and decrease toxic work and learning environments in health care.” Dr. Weisman currently works as an emergency medicine physician at Good Samaritan but also remains involved with hospice and family medicine aspects of health care.
