Today a physician told me she lost 3 colleagues to suicide in the last 2 months.
Loma Linda Hospital just lost 3 young doctors to suicide in 6 months.
Mount Sinai had 3 docs jump in less than 2 years—from the same building.
Tonight we gather as a community. Each of us to shine our light on the most recent suicide. On the life of a brilliant, loving, kind woman. A woman who dedicated her very life to helping and healing others. As a doctor.
Dr. Deelshad Joomun was not just a doctor.
Two days ago a beautiful young doctor jumped to her death beside her NYC hospital. A resident in the victim’s building writes:
“I first heard of this tragedy from your Facebook page. I am so disgusted by the silence. I am having a hard time understanding why there are not flowers by where she passed.
