Physician Well-being Feature

The Global Newsletter is proud to spotlight select ACP physician well-being resources in our 2021 issues. Throughout the year, we will feature resources regarding self-care, peer support, and organizational change, as well as some of ACP's Well-being Champions. This particular issue features a few of our many organizational change resources. Taking care of ourselves and encouraging others to practice self-care sustains our ability to care for those in need.
