Wellness Wednesdays Lunch-hour Webinars

The Ohio Academy of Family Physicians (OAFP) in partnership with the Ohio Physicians Health Program (OPHP), will once again be offering Wellness Wednesdays interactive webinar sessions in 2018. Registration is now open but space is limited; visit the OAFP website to learn more.

Members of the OPPA are invited to participate for FREE.

Wellness Wednesdays is a structured, bi-monthly webinar series that is facilitated by a licensed professional clinical counselor from the OPHP, is offered for free to members, and is scheduled on a Wednesday over the typical lunch hour (12:15 – 1:00 p.m.). The purpose of the webinar series is to create a virtual neighborhood of positive physicians through virtual discussions that focus on spreading the joy of medicine.

Participants will start each session with a brief overview of the discussion topic and are then led through a practical exercise that helps participants learn through self-exploration and personal awareness. Participants will have the opportunity to share their own insight at the end of the 45-minute program and make connections with their peers who are also interested in wellness and professional satisfaction.
