Healthcare workers are at great risk for increased stress due to COVID-19 and even more so at risk are those in leadership positions. During this complimentary webinar, our panelists – who are leaders too – offer supportive information and tools regarding self-care during these unprecedented times. It is critical for leaders to care for themselves before they can effectively care for and lead others.
