We lose an estimated 400 physicians to suicide every year. On this day we will stand together in solidarity to say ‘no more.’

Please join medical students, doctors, administrators, friends, family, and Care2 members across the U.S. to help raise awareness of the medical community’s suicide epidemic. Together we will show those suffering in silence that they are not alone, we will start conversations to create change within our medical schools and hospitals, and we will pay tribute to those who have lost their lives.

Come listen to speakers from the medical community share their experiences, observations, and ideas for how to combat the suicide epidemic.
  • Dr. Pamela Wible, founder of the ideal medical care movement and, last year, named the Women Leader in Medicine will be flying to DC to speak. She has given TedMed talks and has been featured on several major news outlets, including the Washington Post, CNNABCCBSand NPR. Dr. Pamela Wible will be speaking at the DC location and staying after to have one on one groups.
  • The event will be filmed as part of the “Do No Harm” documentary produced by award-winning filmmaker Robyn Symon, who will also be attending.

Bring your own personal story or ideas to share during t
he open mic portion of the event. And join us as we remember those who have lost their lives to suicide during the event’s closing candlelight vigil.

If you are part of the medical community, please wear your white coat. If you are not, please wear a white shirt. Signs and candles will be provided by event organizers.

This event is sponsored by Care2.com and will be filmed as part of the “Do No Harm” documentary produced by award-winning filmmaker Robyn Symon.
