Discussion Series: The Medical Profession Through the Lens of Human Flourishing

Participate in a national conversation where healthcare professionals can boldly ask fundamental questions about the profession of medicine, discuss its role in advancing human flourishing and consider how to address factors at the individual, community or societal level that can pose barriers to flourishing.

This series is presented by the Kern National Network for Caring & Character in Medicine through an investment from the Kern Family Trust and Kern Family Foundation.



Seeking Strength in Times of Crisis

Online | Tuesday, April 27 | 4:00-5:15 PM CT

The COVID-19 pandemic has posed personal and professional challenges for everyone, but particularly for those in the healthcare field. Under such circumstances, what does and can human flourishing look like? To what extent is it possible and equitable in times of crisis—now and otherwise? Hear from three presenters, then engage in a moderated Q&A session. After the one-hour main program, speakers will be available in breakout rooms for individual follow-up questions.

Learning Objectives
  • Discuss how pathways to flourishing (spirituality/religious community, work, education, family) can help health professions learners, practitioners and organizations find strength and resilience during crisis.
  • Describe the types of well-being and mental health resources necessary to sustain strength and resilience for health professions learners, practitioners and patients, during and after crisis.
  • Discuss how expectations for caring, committed and courageous individuals should be balanced with multifaceted institutional and societal support in attaining strength and resilience.
