Friday Mar 31, 2023
What: Join us for a one-hour virtual webinar addressing the impacts of empathy fatigue on health and well-being. This free event provides participants with the opportunity to hear from Ven. Barry Kerzin, M.D., an American physician, and Buddhist monk serving as the personal physician of the 14th Dalai Lama.
Who: Open to family caregivers across the country who need support and resources along the caregiving journey.
When: Friday, April 14, 2023, from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. MST/1:30 – 2:30 p.m. ET
Where: Connect to this virtual webinar from the comfort of your home using the Zoom platform.
Why: Post-pandemic life has witnessed a dramatic rise in stress-related diseases, loneliness and depression, drug overdose, economic pressures, violence to self and others, and a seemingly unending sense of global unrest.
You are invited to meet with a group of like-minded caregivers for the opportunity to set our intentions toward self-care and health as you learn about the adverse impacts of empathy fatigue. Dr. Kerzin will provide insights to help navigate how to holistically gain well-being amidst challenging times.
Dr. Kerzin is the founder and president of the Altruism in Medicine Institute and founder and chairman of the Human Values Institute in Japan, as well as an adjunct professor at both the University of Hong Kong and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
