Women in Medicine - 2020 Annual Retreat

Women in Medicine - 2020 Annual Retreat


Jan. 17-19, 2020

Accredited for 5.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM


Candace Gregory


This year’s retreat will help physicians learn self-care. Being empowered to practice self-care, self-compassion and mindfulness is essential to building resilience. 

Research shows that training in mindfulness and self-compassion techniques can enhance physicians’ ability to cope with stress and burnout. This can result in better self-care, better patient care and improved job satisfaction. 

During the weekend, participants will learn stress resilience, mindful awareness techniques and self-care practices that are easy to implement and practice daily. Training will include a review of scientific and evidence-based literature, self-reflection and experiential exercises. 

Come prepared to improve your overall health and well-being!

She has experience in some of the most stressful fields in health care and has seen the direct impact that stress can have on emotional and physical health. She understands the roles that nutrition, stress reduction, self-care, integrative and complementary therapies and western medicine play in a health professional’s overall well-being and is committed to helping clients deepen their knowledge and live healthier, more fulfilling lives.
