Free Educational Opportunities for the Fall

September 23 2020

The Compassion Network is offering several courses this fall (which you can access here), but we wanted to share some other opportunities that are available online, and for FREE.

The Mindful Health Summit

The Mindful Health Summit is taking place from October 1 to 5 and is a free online event. From their website:

“Our mission is to create a community platform of healthcare professionals exploring how mindfulness, self-compassion and compassion practices can help increase provider well-being, improve patient care, foster mindful teams, and help address racial healthcare disparities.

Whether you are a physician, nurse, EMT, administrator, hospital CEO, psychiatrist, or anyone working in medicine or on the frontlines, this event will share the latest research and best practices for introducing and integrating mindfulness, self-compassion and compassion into your work and life – for you, your patients, and the future of healthcare.”
