Rediscovering Meaning in Our Work--a conference for physicians
September 28 - 29, 2018
JUMP Contemporary Conference Center, Boise, Idaho
National studies highlight a significant and increasing decline in physician health, well-being and enthusiasm for professional work - largely in response to increased healthcare system restraints and demands. Most physicians deal with professional frustrations and challenges on their own, but research has shown distinct benefits when physicians:
Connect with peers
Explore ways to cultivate well being
Advocate for healthcare system change
Engage in meaningful work
At this year's conference, we have included opportunities for physicians and senior healthcare system executives to meet and explore ways to work together to transform our healthcare system so physicians can provide high quality, compassionate medical care with vitality and enthusiasm.
An unique opportunity to work closely with clinicians and researchers who are recognized internationally for their work:
Dr. Colin West - Professor of Medicine, Medical Education, and Biostatistics, Mayo Clinic
Dr. Mick Krasner - Professor of Clinical Medicine, Co-Director, Mindful Practice Programs, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry
Dr. Emiliana Simon-Thomas - Science Director of Greater Good Science Center, University of California, Berkeley
Small group discussions, workshops and interactive presentations
Ample opportunities for relaxed conversation
Time to explore movement, music and art
Forums for discussion with healthcare system executives

Dr. Landrigan is an international leader in public health and preventive medicine.
