The producers of MedPEP would like to thank our partners who have helped us create this podcast.


Audio Engineering

MedPEP was produced with the collaboration of Douglas Stevens from Creative Audio and Music. Douglas helped us with audio recording, sound adjustments, editing, and high quality production.


Suzie Brown, Music

Suzie Brown writes songs to process her life. For a singer-songwriter, it’s not so unusual, but she’s also a cardiologist, used to being stoic and avoiding her own vulnerability at work. Suzie’s music ranges from tender balladry to reggae-tinges blues and buoyant folk-rock. She has been named a finalist in the Mountain Stage NewSong contest and a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. Her 2011 debut album Heartstrings has been featured at Starbucks, The Gap and Anthropologie. Her second album, Almost There, was entirely fan funded. Yet, for all that she’s accomplished musically, Suzie has no intention to abandon medicine; she’s a congestive heart failure/cardiac transplant specialist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.  


Jaidev Dasgupta, Project Lead

Dr. Jaidev Dasgupta, an Encore Fellow at PHS, led the MedPEP project. He is the author of In Search of Immortality: An Introduction to Indic Philosophy (Manohar, 2015). In the recent past he was a scientist, technologist and entrepreneur. 


Massachusetts Medical Society

The Massachusetts Medical Society has provided substantial mission-critical support to its subsidiary, Physician Health Services, Inc. (PHS) since 1993. The MedPEP team has received wise counsel, advice and assistance from a number of individuals and departments of the MMS and NEJM Group. Their commitment to physician well-being and to the advancement of medical knowledge have built a foundation of support for this project that helped both to shape it and to bring it to fruition.
