What can former POWs, special forces instructors, and resilient civilians teach us about weathering a historic resilience challenge like the COVID-19 pandemic? To find out, we spoke with Dennis Charney, MD, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Dean of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and President of Academic Affairs for the Mount Sinai Health System. Dr. Charney is helping lead Mount Sinai’s fight against the pandemic. But he’s also a world-leading expert on resilience. Dr. Charney is co-author of Resilience: The Science of Mastering Life’s Greatest Challenges, the culmination of almost 20 years of research. In this interview, he describes strategies for weathering the challenge of a lifetime and bouncing back stronger than before.
