Daily Mindfulness Challenge with Dr. Reena Kotecha

The Awake Network and Mindful have partnered to create the Mindful Healthcare Summit, a 5-day FREE online event featuring 20+ leading neuroscience researchers, mindfulness experts, and dedicated medical professionals sharing practical, evidence-based tools for navigating the unique challenges of this time.

Our mission is to create a community platform of healthcare professionals exploring how mindfulness, self-compassion and compassion practices can help increase provider well-being, improve patient care, foster mindful teams, and help address racial healthcare disparities.

Whether you are a physician, nurse, EMT, administrator, hospital CEO, psychiatrist, or anyone working in medicine or on the frontlines, this event will share the latest research and best practices for introducing and integrating mindfulness, self-compassion and compassion into your work and life – for you, your patients, and the future of healthcare.

We look forward to you joining us!
