“Diane Shannon’s engaging and timely lecture attracted both clinical and administrative staff. Her message was unifying and a catalyst for positive systems changes. All members of the audience expressed their appreciation and as evident by the questions, found the talk very useful and educational.”

– Diane London, MD, Internal Medicine, Chair, Medical Education Committee, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital- Needham

“I am writing to express my gratitude for the MedPEP Changing the System That Destroys Careers podcast. I am dedicated to returning joy to the practice of medicine, as I’ve witnessed physicians—with whom I have worked both collegially and clinically—bear the brunt of our beleaguered health care system for far too long. Listening to the podcast has provided me not only with practical advice, but also the courage to speak with my superiors about my aspirations. Thank you a thousand times over to Dr. Shannon for her generosity, and for being a true source of inspiration!”

– Linda M. Bolle, PsyD, Clinical Psychologist, Department of Pain Management, Atrius Health

“Diane Shannon is an outstanding speaker. She has a natural gift for public speaking. Diane told her own story while also paying attention to the facts regarding physician burnout. The talk was artfully done.”

– Scott Rodgers, MD, Professor and Chair, Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior
University of Mississippi Medical Center

“Dr. Shannon was clear and well-prepared in her talk, which provided a framework for thinking about coaching and how it can intersect with therapy. She brings both valuable personal and professional experience to bear in looking at both how to support individuals and systems – both of which are needed to improve our health care system.”

– Jeff Brand, PsyD, CGP, Staff Psychologist & Adult Group Co-Coordinator, The Brookline Center for Community Mental Health
