Anticipation: The Joy & Wholeness Summit

When I was a ten-year-old boy, summer was an opportunity to anticipate good times. Sometimes it was a family trip to the gulf beach---sun, sand, and surf. Sometimes it was the mountains---breakfast over an open fire in the early morning, hiking at midday, swimming in a cold stream on a hot afternoon, dozing off in a sleeping bag. The experience rarely failed to meet and surpass expectations.

What can we anticipate from the 13th Annual Joy & Wholeness Summit in Park City, Utah? Is this conference more about work or play? Is it intended to be more about business or pleasure? Will it be worth the price of the ticket, the time away from the desk and daily office routine? What will make this conference a worthwhile experience and valuable expenditure of money, time, and effort?

Here's what we can anticipate: Outstanding speakers addressing important issues---professional burnout, PTSD, SUD, moral injury, depression. Opportunities for networking with colleagues from around the country—sharing ideas, confronting challenges, learning together. Laying a foundation for lasting relationships, collaboration, and community.

This is not the biggest or splashiest conference of its kind in the country. We do believe it is one of the best, most relevant, most engaging, most practical, and most immediately applicable, regardless of one’s role, location, or organization.

As for all of that “fun stuff”---hiking, rafting, fishing, shopping, touring the sights---plan on taking time for respite, recreation, and resilience. Welcome physicians, administrators, and clinicians of all specialties and interests. We’re looking forward to seeing you in Utah!!!
