The COVID-19 Marathon – Are You in the Right Mindset?

Time: 1 p.m. PT/ 3 p.m. CT/ 4 p.m. ET
Moderator: Alexander S. Niven, MD, FCCP
Panelist: Amit Sood, MD, MS

Have you ever found your mind racing at work? Struggled to focus on a patient conversation or task at a critical time? Snapped at your family at the end of a long day? Health care is a high-stress profession, and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic challenges us every day as we strive to take the best care of our patients—and our families.

Join us for a conversation with Amit Sood, MD, Executive Director of the Global Center for Resiliency and Wellbeing, creator of the Resilient Option program, and a recognized international expert in this area. Dr. Sood will discuss the science and skills that teach us how to use our minds to their fullest potential. He will also describe a structured approach to reclaim our attention when we need it the most and to preserve compassion and meaning at the bedside during these challenging times.
