The Coalition for Physician Well-Being presents conversations with healthcare professionals who support wholeness within their organizations. Our guests understand that in the pursuit of wholeness we must encompass the physical, mental, social, and spiritual health care of each individual, in order to reinvigorate their purpose and meaning. Hosted by one of our very own members, Dr. Michael Brown of Acesis.
