    Webinar with Mark Heyman, PhD, CDE 

    Healthcare provider burnout is increasing in prevalence and poses a threat to our healthcare system. Burnout was a syndrome identified 30 years ago, and is characterized by depersonalization, emotional exhaustion, and a sense of low personal accomplishment. Characteristics of the healthcare environment coupled with personal factors place healthcare providers at risk for burnout. The Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Institute is honored to have Mark Heyman, PhD, CDE discuss this important and timely topic. 

     

    Dr. Heyman is the Director of the Center for Diabetes and Mental Health, a Medical Group Practice located in Solana Beach, CA. He concentrates on providing specialized mental health services to people with diabetes. He develops and delivers training and educational materials to healthcare providers on psychosocial issues related to diabetes. Dr. Heyman received his PhD in Clinical Psychology from George Washington University in Washington, DC.

     

    Please join the Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Institute for an interactive learning event on Thursday, September 21 from 1:00-2:00 PM Eastern Time, 12:00-1:00 PM Central Time and 10:00-11:00 AM Pacific Time in the United States/Canada.  All webinars are recorded and available in replay within two weeks after the live event.

    Waterbury, VT

    Waterbury, VT

    Good Afternoon, I&R/A organizations & professionals,

     

    As you know, Information, Referral, and Assistance (I&R/A) serves a vital role to our communities to individuals seeking answers, assistance, and services.  Our I&R/A Specialists act as the bridge connecting services with the people who need them.   A decade ago, most states in New England boasted home to AIRS-affiliated organizations, today there are none. 

     

    On Monday, September 25th in Waterbury, Vermont, we’ll be gathering experts — everyone from direct service providers to state, local, and, national leaders in the field.  We’ll be fine-tuning our skills, discussing how to modernize our technology, how to increase the quantity and quality of our data, while looking to innovators in the field to maximize our fundraising capabilities and reach. 

    We’ll talk about where we’ve been, where we are, and where we want to go in the future. 

    Please join us in this first step on our journey to a more coordinated, higher quality of Information, Referral, and Assistance services in the New England area! 

     

    Below is a snapshot of our speaker’s, more information about the agenda, speakers, and the event is located on our registration page.  Seating is limited, don’t miss out!  Registration is FREE!

    DID YOU KNOW?

    Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer and the second leading cause of death in adults.

    When found at an early stage, it is frequently cured.

    JOIN US FOR THIS IMPORTANT FREE EVENT — YOU MAY QUALIFY FOR A FREE SCREENING!

    There’s more than one way to screen for colorectal cancer. Learn about the pros and cons of different types of screenings, including colonoscopy and the newer stool-based tests. Understand the procedures and how one of these valuable tests could help to save your life.

    If you are at normal or low risk for colon cancer — you’re over age 50 and have no increased risk of colon cancer based on your family or personal history — you may choose to have a stool sample screening rather than have a colonoscopy to identify treatable cancers.

    Join us for this informative event to understand your options.

     

    Free take-home colorectal cancer screening tests will also be distributed to pre-qualified event participants.
