I was grateful to get a family member on to chat during her day off from the hospital. Dr Ify Nwankwo has been working on the frontline in New York City and came on to share her tips on how she is maintaining her mental fitness, recovering from her shifts, the positive changes she is seeing in NYC and dealing with having to cancel her wedding. I hope you find the chat useful.
