PHP Drop-in and Share: COVID-19 Physician Peer Support Sessions

Date: Every Tuesday and Thursday, starting April 7

Time: 4 - 5 pm (PST)

Location: Online/webinar

During this challenging time, physicians are working hard to care for patients, their families and communities. The burden of this responsibility is taking its toll, with increased stress, anxiety, and risk of burnout. Talking to other physicians can help. 

Join your colleagues, Psychiatrist Dr Jennifer Russel, and PHP’s Roxanne Joyce, to talk about the issues and challenges you’re facing. Sessions will focus on peer support not psychiatric care. Click here for more information or register by emailing peersupport@physicianhealth.com for the link.
