Healing the Healer: Discussions and Practices for Troubling Times

Each year, we host an educational series focused on all facets of inequity during the Summer Grand Rounds sessions. This year, our focus is Healing the Healer, in which we will explore the impact of racism, violence, and erosion of rights on our faculty and staff. We will offer both presentations and healing practices. The sessions can be used to fulfill one or more of your five annually required DICE Activities.
