Event Description

Catherine Florio Pipas, MD visits Gibson's to present a tool kit for sustaining wellness and building resilience to balance out stressful lifestyles, especially for health professionals, in A Doctor's Dozen: Twelve Strategies for Personal Health and a Culture of Wellness. Burnout affects a third of our population and over half of our health professionals. For the second group, the impact is magnified, as consequences play out not only on a personal level, but also on a societal level and lead to medical errors, suboptimal care, low levels of patient satisfaction, and poor clinical outcomes. Achieving wellbeing requires strategies for change. In this book, Dr. Pipas shares twelve lessons and strategies for improved health that she has learned from patients, students, and colleagues over her twenty years working as a family physician.
