Minnesota Cares: A Wellness Workshop for Our Healthcare Community

Minnesota Cares

PLEASE JOIN US AS WE HONOR YOU, A VITAL PART OF MINNESOTA’S HEALTHCARE COMMUNITY

Our healthcare community has given selflessly to care for Minnesotans during the pandemic for more than two years, at great cost to their physical and mental health.  Workers report being exhausted, overwhelmed, depressed, and anxious, and we are seeing shortages across nearly all job classes.

A number of current and former leaders in healthcare have donated their time and expertise to plan a FREE two-day event to honor the healthcare community and to provide them with evidence-based tools to improve their well-being and build resilience.

This event is open to anyone in the healthcare community (hospital, clinic, long-term care, pharmacy, emergency medical, public health, and many others) who provided care or support services during the pandemic.

The event provides an opportunity to:

THANK the healthcare community for their past and ongoing service

TEACH self-care through a variety of workshops and learning sessions

FOSTER RESILIENCE for the future through evidence-based strategies and tools
