Practitioner Wellness

“Our lives as physicians are filled with blessings.  We are the people in birth, death, and illness.  We are honored to enter their lives in their most vulnerable moments and to share the joys of their lives with them.  For most of us, this feels like a true mission, yet the busyness of our lives leads us to a state of fatigue, exhaustion, and even burnout.  How can we reclaim our lives, our missions, and passions, while gaining greater self-awareness and love in our lives?” -Lee Lipsenthal MD
