Now that summer is unofficially here, I hope you have planned some relaxing time away from the office. There’s nothing like a great vacation to recharge and rejuvenate.
We appreciate your thoughtful responses to last month’s column featuring the results of our physician engagement survey. We remain interested in hearing your thoughts on stress and burnout, as well as your story ideas. Click here to contact us. We’d love to hear from you.
You’ve told us that you love reading interesting stories about your friends and colleagues. This month we introduce you to Dr. Kelly Janke, who has found that her experience caring for patients as a nurse at LGH has prepared her well for her new career as a general surgeon with The Surgical Group of LG Health.
Also this month, Dr. Attila Devenyi, a pediatric gastroenterologist and Chair of Pediatrics at LGH, explains how he relaxes with a hobby that many of us would find pretty stressful: willingly surrounding himself with swarms of bees.
I hope you find time during these first few days of June to engage in an activity that relieves stress – whatever that means for you.
Thank you for reading Progress Notes!
