The Covid-19 pandemic is presenting faculty and staff with new sources of stress arising from worry about patients, friends, and family, social isolation, loss of personal support systems, and changes to routines. Research has shown that mindfulness meditation can help reduce these feelings of stress, anxiety, and the burnout that results. In these webinars, we’ll discuss basic approaches to mindfulness and provide practical techniques that can be used by participants both during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
Beginning Wednesday, May 13, we will be offering weekly mindfulness sessions until the end of June.
Log in information will be sent to webinar registrants prior to the event.
