Friday, October 12th, 2018, 5:30 p.m.

Catherine Florio Pipas, MD visits Gibson's to present a tool kit for sustaining wellness and building resilience to balance out stressful lifestyles, especially for health professionals, in A Doctor's Dozen: Twelve Strategies for Personal Health and a Culture of Wellness.

Burnout affects a third of our population and over half of our health professionals. For the second group, the impact is magnified, as consequences play out not only on a personal level, but also on a societal level and lead to medical errors, suboptimal care, low levels of patient satisfaction, and poor clinical outcomes. Achieving wellbeing requires strategies for change. In this book, Dr. Pipas shares twelve lessons and strategies for improved health that she has learned from patients, students, and colleagues over her twenty years working as a family physician. Each lesson is based on observation and research, and begins with a story of an exemplary patient whose challenges and successes reflect the theme of the lesson. Along with the lessons, the author offers plans for action, which taken together create the framework for a healthy life. Each lesson concludes with resources and a "health challenge.

About the author: Catherine Florio Pipas is a professor in the Department of Community and Family Medicine, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.
