Staying Connected Inside & Out During the Pandemic – New Post on CLOSLER

I have a new post on CLOSLER: Moving Us Closer to Osler, a Miller Coulson Academy of Clinical Excellence Initiative of Johns Hopkins – “Staying Connected Inside and Out During the Pandemic.”

Shamanic Vision, D. Kopacz, 2016 (published in Becoming Medicine)

“Our primary public health measure at this time is not getting too physically close to one another. However, we know from research that socialization has a positive effect and isolation a negative effect on our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. What we need right now, for our personal and collective health, is not social distancing, but physical distancing. We need to find ways of being social and connecting without physically touching or being in close physical proximity. We need to find ways of staying connected, inside and out.”

To read the full post, follow the link, thanks CLOSLER for all the great work you are doing on clinician wellness during these times.
