When DOs and medical students across the nation gather in Anaheim, California, in September for OMED 2016, many will be leaving behind jam-packed schedules and hectic practices. As burnout becomes increasingly common among physicians, the AOA hopes OMED 2016 will be a place where DOs can hit the pause button and take some much-needed time to contemplate wellness and work-life balance while recharging their batteries.
New York Times bestselling author Deepak Chopra, MD, this year’s OMED keynote speaker, will address DOs on the subject of wellness at OMED’s General Session on Saturday, Sept. 17.
Refresh, renew, reconnect
Deepak Chopra, MD, founder of The Chopra Foundation and co-founder of The Chopra Center for Wellbeing, is renowned as a pioneer of personal transformation. He’s board-certified in internal medicine and endocrinology. His bestselling books include the award-winning “Peace is the Way,” “Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of your Mind to maximize Health, Happiness, and Spiritual Well Being,” and “Spiritual Solutions—Answers To Life’s Greatest Problems.”
In addition to hearing from Dr. Chopra, DOs attending OMED will have more opportunities to reconnect with the reason they became physicians via unique sessions in the Inspiration Zone, receptions with their colleagues, family-friendly events and opportunities to learn the latest insights in health care.
