From overworking to self-care: a pediatric neurologist’s journey
In this episode, we welcome Maria Xiang, a pediatric neurologist, join us to share her personal journey and insights on how to remain emotionally present in the midst of life’s challenges.
Maria opens up about how she believed that virtue and self-sacrifice were her protection, leading her to overwork and overprepare without considering her own worthiness and fulfillment. She shares how this mindset affected her during her medical training, especially when dealing with her mother’s end-stage cancer.
She also shares practical tips and strategies she’s learned over the years to help her remain emotionally present and connected with her wiser self, including understanding that human needs go beyond just food, shelter, and minimal sleep.
Join us in this enlightening conversation as Maria shares her experiences and insights on how to remain emotionally present and honor your human needs, even in the face of life’s most difficult challenges.

With so many demands on their time, physicians today report record levels of burnout. Burnout is caused by many factors, one of which is clinical documentation. Studies indicate physicians spend two hours documenting care for every hour spent with patients.
At Nuance, we are committed to helping physicians do what you love – care for patients – and spend less time on clinical documentation. The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, is an AI-powered, ambient clinical intelligence solution that automatically captures patient encounters securely and accurately at the point of care. Physicians who use DAX have reported a 50 percent decrease in documentation time and a 70 percent reduction in feelings of burnout, and 83 percent of patients say their physician is more personable and conversational.
Rediscover the joy of medicine with clinical documentation that writes itself, all within the EHR.
