On this week’s 51%, our Associate Producer, Jody Cowan, speaks with physician and author Dr. Gail Gazelle about how healthcare workers can use mindfulness to combat burnout – and steady their own life in the wake of a stressed healthcare system. Dr. Gazelle’s new book is Mindful MD: 6 Ways Mindfulness Restores Your Autonomy and Cures Healthcare Burnout. We also hear from researchers at the University at Albany’s Center for Health Workforce Studies about how service-obligated programs can help providers bridge the healthcare worker shortage across New York state.
Guests: Jean Moore, director of the Center for Health Workforce Studies at the University at Albany; Robert Martiniano, senior program manager at CHWS; Dr. Gail Gazelle, physician coach and author of Mindful MD: 6 Ways Mindfulness Restores Your Autonomy and Cures Healthcare Burnout
