The MGH will host a celebration in recognition of its new Center for Physician Well-being June 28 from 10 am to 3 pm in the Bulfinch Tent. The center – jointly funded by the Department of Medicine and the MGPO Frigoletto Committee Grant – promotes well-being and professional fulfillment for physicians across the department.

“We are very excited to introduce the center’s efforts to the entire MGH community,” said Kerri Palamara-McGrath, MD, director of the Center for Physician Well-being. “Supporting the well-being of our physicians also supports high-functioning teams, outstanding patient care and a positive workplace culture. We believe the center will be a leader in this work locally and nationally.”

The event is open to all and will highlight the programs and initiatives the center will offer, as well as provide opportunities to connect with colleagues, enjoy food and win prizes.

The theme of “gratitude” will be front and center at the launch. Attendees are invited to share what they are grateful for on a Gratitude Wall and try their hand at creating a beautiful plant arrangement to give to someone as a token of appreciation. Through a team-building activity, small groups will work together to build bicycles that will be donated to the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization. Teams can sign up in advance or on launch day.
