Poonam D., DO — The New Icons

While most mothers-to-be would be preparing for maternity leave, New York, NY based physician Poonam, was working long shifts in the Emergency Room at the height of the COVID-19 outbreak. Her commitment to her patients and colleagues was unwavering and she had no plans to slow down until she tested positive for Coronavirus and was forced to take a step back. Even then, she was consulting with patients virtually. The experience taught her the importance of being adaptable to change. Nothing is guaranteed, she says, but being able to find happiness and peace in any situation is key.

EVERYDAY I WAKE UP AND… Focus on being grateful.
