Public Health Epidemiology Conversations

Sep 7, 2021

Burnout can manifest in many ways, starting subtly and suddenly leading to memory loss and other issues. Our guest today is passionate about burnout and the downstream impact that it has on chronic diseases.

Sumana Jeddy is a content creator, influencer, and the founder and CEO of Jeddy Wellness. In this episode, you’ll hear about Sumana’s background in infectious disease epidemiology and surveillance.

Sumana’s interest in public health began when she was studying microbiology, and she owes a credit to a professor who showed her the various directions that a healthcare career can go in. Sumana advises listeners at the start of their careers to develop their purpose by having conversations with professors and taking courses.

She shares a bit about her own episode of burnout, and unpacks how simple symptoms develop into major ones, before telling us how she strategically rebranded herself to begin her entrepreneurship journey, fighting and preventing burnout. Sumana believes that individual health promotes community health and urges listeners to develop a personal wellness strategy in order to teach the community around them.

Her final words of advice are to listen to your body, and develop self-awareness as soon as you can. We hope you join us to learn from this inspiring leader in wellness today.
