Self-Care as an Ethical Obligation and Leading and Living to Thrive During COVID-19
Earlier in the month, Luminis Health proudly invited Katie Boston-Leary and Liz Stokes, members of the American Nurses Association (ANA) to speak to our employees about finding the balance to personal safety and professional obligations. During this Nursing Grand Round event, Boston-Leary and Stokes guided participants through an analysis of this dilemma and provided the tools needs to holistically apply concepts of thriving during a pandemic.
