Wellness Forum


Spring 2017 Wellness Forum - "Compassionate Care in a Sometimes Uncompassionate World"

April 12, 2017 - 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Methodist College Campus

Our modern health and human service systems provide care to millions of people under extraordinarily complicated circumstances-patients have complex issues, costs to provide care rise while budgets shrink, potential legal ramifications are always looming, and competition between providers contribute to stressful settings to care for those in need.  Yet, at the core of caregiving remains the interaction between the patient and the caregiver. The Wellness Forum focuses on that relationship and how the caregiver can best infuse their caregiving with compassion.

We hope by attending this event you will be refreshed and inspired to show compassion in all aspects of your life, especially when caring for your patients and clients even under the most stressful conditions.

Featuring Keynote Speakers:
Morning - Dr. Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi, Professor of Practice, Emory University, Department of Religion
Lunch - Ms. Heather Woody, Master Certified Coach, Heather Woody Unlimited

The Wellness Forum Planning Committee has applied to several professional continuing education granting bodies.  We are hopeful that specific sessions will qualify as continuing education hours for:
