Physician Burnout to Espirit de Corps!


October 12, 2018
5:30–8 p.m.

Please Note: This event has already occurred.

This event is designed to make people aware of an important and timely movement that is happening in northern Nevada regarding physician and medical-student health. Some of you may not be aware of the ruinous, worsening epidemic of physician burnout, depression, and suicide nationwide, and unfortunately also right here at home in Nevada. A group of passionate, mostly-physician, local advocates recently formed the Northern Nevada Physician Wellness Coalition ( NNPWC.com ).

Our Mission Statement pretty much says it all: "To address the devastation and negative community impact of physician burnout and suicide." To the best of our knowledge, the non-profit (501c3) NNPWC is the first such alliance in the country, with no previous physician wellness initiative ever being Physician Led, intentionally independent, and tirelessly compassionate to the needs of local physicians and medical students. Please accept my invitation, on behalf of our Board Directors and Advisors, to attend our NNPWC Kick-Off event on Friday October 12th, 2018 at 5:30 pm at the Joe Crowley Student Union, on the beautiful campus of the University of Nevada.
