Make plans to join us on October 27th from 6 - 7 p.m. for a virtual program hosted by RAM's Women in Focus Committee! While the pandemic is preventing us from meeting in person, we'll be bringing this timely program to RAM members via Zoom!

COVID-19 hit healthcare systems already challenged with alarming rates of health inequity and clinician distress. Clinicians have risen to the occasion to insure patients get the best care available, as they always do. How do we make sure clinicians are attending to their own care? How can leadership best support their clinicians? And how might we use the opportunity of the pandemic to reshape healthcare?

RAM's Women in Focus group is pleased to offer this timely webinar as part of its physician well-being series for the benefit of all RAM members. Join us to hear nationally-recognized speaker and co-founder of Moral Injury of Healthcare, Dr. Wendy Dean, who will share with us how to ensure our healthcare providers are taken care of during these unprecedented times.

About our Speaker

An emergency room physician and psychiatrist by training, Dr. Dean left clinical medicine when generating revenue crowded out the patient-centered priorities of her practice. Her focus since has been on finding innovative ways to make medicine better for both patients and physicians through technology, ethics and systems change.

Following her 15 years of clinical practice, she spent eight years in leadership positions, overseeing medical research funding for the U.S. Army, and as a senior executive at a large nonprofit in Washington, D.C., supporting novel strategies to restore form, function and appearance to ill and injured service members. She turned her full attention to addressing moral injury in 2019, co-founding Moral Injury of Healthcare, to reframe clinician distress and burnout and to reimagine better medicine.
