Why Lodestar

In the end, it’s really very simple: We all need a deeper bench.


That’s why I founded Lodestar.

Burnout, or Secondary Trauma? 

Physicians are smart, tough, durable, resourceful people. If there was a way to MacGyver themselves out of this situation by working harder, smarter, or differently, they would have done it already.

Meet Dr. Sarraf

Everyone is experiencing this pandemic differently, but the baseline emotions are all the same: shock, fear, horror, outrage, disbelief, exhaustion and, ultimately, grief. No one - especially those in the field of medicine - is escaping this unscathed. The pain is universal. We all need some extra tools right now."

--Kemia Sarraf, M.D., M.P.H., RCC, TIPC™
