26hr photo project: "It's my daughter's birthday today."
Dr. Jordan Van Dyk says: "Outside of medicine, I love to play with my kids. It's my daughter's birthday today - I'll go home and we'll celebrate. I'm so busy and I miss them, but being on call all week I feel is harder for my partner - not having adults to talk to, especially with COVID, and putting the kids to bed by herself. It's challenging. I think we'll both be glad my call is done!" Swipe to see Dr. Van Dyk before and after call.
About 26hr photo project: Photographer Rebecca Hay is a resident physician training in Paediatrics in Calgary. "Physicians commonly work shifts up to 26 hours long—often without breaks or sleep, caring for families and vulnerable people. A lot can happen in that time, both beautiful and exhausting. I started the photo project "26hr" to highlight the human aspect of medicine and the incredible people working these shifts, and to explore their stories and perceptions."
