“Life presents to you situations that you need to learn to be able to do what you want to do. So you got the experience of feeling burnout so that you can help other people burnout.” 

– Dr. Rozina

“ I am so grateful I went through this experience because it has taught me so much that we don’t know in medicine about. Brain health..”

“When we’ve got good brain health, we’re going to have good mental well-being and we can deal with the hurricanes in our life. We can be like a palm tree and a hurricane where we bend, but we don’t break.”

-Dr. Isabel
