Wellness Wednesdays is a structured, bi-monthly webinar series focused on enhancing professional and personal wellness through the joy of medicine offered for free to all participants and scheduled on a Wednesday during the typical lunch hour, 12:15-1 p.m EST.
Participants will start each session with a brief overview of the discussion topic and then have the opportunity to share their own insight and ask questions at the end of the 45-minute program. It provides a great way to make connections with peers who are interested in these valuable topics.
Session topics, speakers, and the audience have been expanded upon this year thanks to a grant provided by the AAFP Foundation Family Medicine Philanthropic Consortium (FMPC) that was made possible through its Dues Check-Off Program!
Each session brings a new topic and speaker to address themes within wellness and professional satisfaction that we haven’t heard from during previous Wellness Wednesdays sessions. Members from all American Academy of Family Physicians chapters are invited to participate. In addition, we welcome members from organizations in the Ohio Physician Wellness Coalition to participate and join the conversation.
This year’s sessions are sure to be moments of joy you never knew you needed! Below is a list of upcoming topics. Please click on the title link to register for each session.
