Student Wellness at #MMSS18

Physician wellness begins at the student level - we're here to help you take care of yourselves so you can take care of others. This year, the RSA Wellness Committee has worked with us to bring resilience and burnout prevention to the Midwest Symposium. Make sure you stop by the Student Activities Center to share affirmations and decompress with some foosball! There will also be a wellness focused breakout session.
