Oct 21 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am
Professionalism Week 2021: Navigating Pandexit - Rebounding from Individual and Collective Challenges @ Virtual Event (register below)

Please join us as we discuss how groups can successfully navigate collective trauma with the COVID-19 pandemic as a model. It is how we cultivate resilience as a group, foster communication and individually and collectively recover and grow that determines whether an initial trauma will cause additional fall out. We propose to review some best practices for how to collectively navigate “pandexit” or recovery from any traumatic or stressful situation that affects a large group of people. In this session, we will discuss individual and group tools for resilience, go over acute and chronic reactions to trauma and discuss how leadership can steer groups of people into recovery.

Speakers:

      Kate Dielentheis, MD, assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology
      Kristy Graettinger, MD, associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology
      Abbey Kruper, PsyD, associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry and behavioral medicine

Below the Belt: an endometriosis movie screening and panelist discussion event @ Oriental Theatre

Below the Belt is a movie that shows personal & inspiring stories of four patients urgently searching for answers to mysterious symptoms. It exposes widespread problems in our healthcare systems that disproportionately affect women, and especially women of color who are less likely to be believed, diagnosed & effectively treated for menstrual health issues.

Through the lens of endometriosis, a disease that affects 1 in 9 women, the film shows how women are often dismissed, discounted & disbelieved. From societal taboos and gender bias to misinformed doctors and profit-driven healthcare, the film reveals how millions are effectively silenced and how, by fighting back, they can improve healthcare for everyone.
