Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Children’s Practicing Pediatricians, Partners For Kids and The Central Ohio Pediatric Society (COPS) are excited to present this interactive session with Dr. Epstein who will propose ways of becoming more mindful at work and institutional cultures that promote mindfulness.
