The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on the mental health of our healthcare workers and exacerbated worrisome trends of increasing burnout. While healthcare workers were applauded as “heroes,” heroes are human and fragile, and our health systems and society need to value and prioritize their well-being. On the heels of National Geographic’s release of “The First Wave” and President Biden’s signature of the Dr. Lorna Breen Health Care Provider Protection Act, thought leaders, innovators and global humanitarian Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar joined together in this seminar to discuss what we can each do to support the health of those who keep us healthy.
