Self-Care, Resilience, Psychology of Stress, & Equity in Healthcare

In our January series we talk with healthcare leaders on the importance of self-care, how to tap into resilience, the ways in which stress affects us psychologically, and areas where we see disparities in access to care. Each of these accomplished women will share their path to leadership, some of their challenges, and the resources they drew upon to get where they are today.

Our first three episodes are centered on the role of race and gender on equity at different phases of a woman’s life. Elizabeth Huntley will focus on childhood, Bobbie Knight on the young adult/college perspective, and Myla Calhoun will share thoughts on how these issues play out at the community level. Additionally, all three women will share their own stories, challenges and experiences on their path to the impressive leadership roles they are in today.
