Rediscovering Meaning In Our Work

Presentations, Workshops and Conferences



Presentations and Workshops:

I contribute as a speaker to medical conferences nationwide, exploring cutting edge ways to enhance physician health and well being and facilitating interactive discussions on the science of mindful practice and the cultivation of compassion in healthcare.



In our Rediscovering Meaning In Our Work conferences, physicians are invited to come together for a few days to explore ways to enhance their health and well being, promote collaborative healthcare system changes and rekindle their enthusiasm for professional work.  

We bring together leading clinicians and researchers from around the world to present cutting edge research and investigate innovative approaches and opportunities with physicians.

Our conferences are experiential and interactive (primarily small group discussions) and offer physicians ample time for relaxation and conversations with peers.  Music, movement, and art are integrated into our retreat-like conferences.

This year's Rediscovering Meaning In Our Work conference is scheduled for September 28th and 29th, 2018 at a unique, contemporary venue in Boise, Idaho.   The event is hosted by the Idaho Osteopathic Physicians Association.  For details about the conference, please click here.

In 2016, physicians met at a mountain resort in Sun Valley, Idaho for a 3 day conference hosted and sponsored by the Idaho Osteopathic Physicians Association.  Our speakers included: 

Dr. Colin West, Professor of Medicine, Medical Education, and Biostatistics at Mayo Clinic

Dr. Michael Krasner, Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry

Dr. Joan Halifax, a medical anthropologist, the Director of the Project on Being with Dying and the Founder of the Upaya Prison Project and Nomads Clinic in Nepal.
