Join the Central Virginia Chapter of Women in Healthcare for a discussion with Drs. Lisa Ellis and Amelia Grover, who will share important information around the topic of burnout. Some of the questions we will be exploring include:

What is burnout and how is it affecting the success of healthcare systems? How do we identify when we or someone around us may be struggling with burnout and how is it impacting women in the workforce?

Dr. Ellis and Dr. Grover will also share some strategies for mitigating burnout and enhancing wellness.

Both of our speakers have been engaged in extensive leadership and wellness training at the local and national level.
