BUILDING AN ALLIANCE
Contributing comes in many forms. Administrators running programs combating burnout across the country have been generous in sharing knowledge as have researchers at universities. Physicians have given their time to make suggestions and articulate their daily struggles, clarifying our priorities. Agencies fighting burnout have helped us craft an offering that is unique and complementary to theirs.
Join us and make introductions, build partnerships, offer suggestions and/or donations to treat the symptoms and reduce the causes of burnout.
