Burning Out on the COVID Front Lines: A Doctor's Memoir of Fatherhood, Race and Perseverance in the Pandemic, a Conversation with author Dhaval R. Desai, MD 

Dr. Dhaval R. Desai, a leading Atlanta hospital physician, will engage in a conversation with veteran Georgia broadcaster Jeff Hullinger about Dr. Desai’s book, Burning Out on the COVID Front Lines: A Doctor's Memoir of Fatherhood, Race and Perseverance in the Pandemic. The memoir tells the story of Desai’s life during the pandemic. As a new father, frontline physician and healthcare leader on the brink of burnout, and a member of an ethnic minority in the South, his tale is marked by chaotic intersections. Throughout, his commitment to fostering and advocating for caring and compassion in the practice of medicine shines as Desai shares his unique perspective.

This event is sponsored by Cobb County Public Library and Cobb Collaborative, which focuses strategically on its Mind Your Mind mental health initiative, literacy and civic engagement. Copies of Burning Out on the COVID Front Lines will be available at for purchase from The Book Worm Bookstore and signing by the author. Dr. Desai will donate all author proceeds to the Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes’ Foundation, which focuses on the de-stigmatization of mental health for healthcare workers and suicide awareness.
