TITLE: Resilience: A New Take on Wellness

SPEAKER: Carole Lambert, MPA, RN

DATE: Monday, April 16, 2018

TIME: 6:00 p.m. - Dinner

6:30 p.m. - Presentation


Ms. Lambert will address the topics of why we worry about physician wellness and why we characterize our lives as unbalanced.

Most advice tells us to search for work-life balance: that work is bad and life happens when we’re not at work. This advice demotes the importance of work and loads non-work time with unrealistic expectations.

Can a successful clinician-scientist really:

Þ Eat six small meals a day?

Þ Work out four times a week?

Þ Attend all family functions?

Þ Spend regular quality time with friends?

A more achievable goal and a more enduring result is resilience...the capacity to live life to the fullest and face adversity, change and challenge with purpose and determination.
