"The Emotional Toll of Being a Health Care Provider
During a Global Pandemic"

Please be sure to join us for this important panel discussion regarding the outbreak of COVID-19 and the incredible stress and emotional turmoil it has generated for healthcare providers.

Often required to work grueling shifts under conditions of fear and uncertainty, concerns have ranged from the lack of PPE to protect themselves and their families, to limited testing capacity, and the prospect of running out of ventilators and having to withhold care from the dying. This panel session profiles three exemplary care providers who, while looking inward, outward, and forward, will reflect upon their personal experiences and share insights based upon their professional expertise. This engaging and interactive discussion will convey the exceptional dedication and compassion required to provide quality care during a pandemic and help healthcare workers feel acknowledged, supported, and appreciated.

This presentation will be moderated by Jose Franco, MD and presented by Paul A. Bergl, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine (Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine), Heidi F. Christianson, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine; Training Director, Health Psychology Residency, and Julie R. Owen, MD, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine and Emergency Medicine.
