Catherine Florio Pipas, MD will be joining the Middlebury College community to present her tool kit for sustaining wellness and building resilience to balance out stressful lifestyles, especially for health professionals. She will be sharing insights from her recently published book, A Doctor’s Dozen: 12 Strategies for Personal Health and a Culture of Wellness.
In this book, Dr. Pipas shares twelve lessons and strategies for improved health that she has learned from patients, students, and colleagues over her twenty years working as a family physician. Each lesson is based on observation and research, and begins with a story of an exemplary patient whose challenges and successes reflect the theme of the lesson. Along with the lessons, the author offers plans for action, which taken together create the framework for a healthy life. Each lesson concludes with resources and a “health challenge.
Dr. Pipas is a professor in the Department of Community and Family Medicine, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.
Immediately after the talk ends at 7:00, Dr. Pipas will join Director of the Global Health Program and Professor of the Practice of Global Health, Pam Berenbaum and 8 students for dinner in the President’s dining room. Please RSVP to Pam Berenbaum if you can come to the talk AND would like to join them for dinner. The dinner should be fun, and the meal will be served in the room, so no waiting in lines in the dining hall!
