Hope for Our Frontline Healthcare & Workers

Saturday, April 24th, 1:00pm-3:30pm (Arizona time)


From 1:00-2:00, Gina will be exploring just what compassion fatigue is and how to identify the signs. She will also be weighing in on why it is so prevalent right now and the importance of catching the signs early because there can be some serious consequences of not recognizing it.

From 2:00-3:30, Julie takes a deep dive into understanding healthcare provider burnout and offers a variety of novel ways to reverse burnout, increase resiliency and return to a vibrant state of health, balance, and vitality. You’ll get a chance to practice some regenerative exercises.
