As physicians, we have only learned to keep going. When we get into school, it feels like we are on a conveyor belt that we cannot get off of no matter what. Some people bend, but most people break. Not because they do not have what it takes, but because medicine takes so much from you. It is my absolute pleasure to share the story of Air Force Captain Jillian Rigert, DMD, MD with you. She went through so many ups and downs of self doubt, anxiety, anorexia, depression and suicidal ideation, but had the courage to come through creating a life on purpose.
