Provider Wellness Podcast

Provider Wellness Podcast

This podcast will discuss caregiver health and wellness from the broad to the specific. My aim is to educate while offering a unique perspective. The ultimate goal is to change the culture of poor self-care in the healthcare providers population. For those who take care of others, it's time to take care of yourselves.
