Maggie Grueskin
Overcoming Burnout

1.25 hours

To be authentic healers, we must first start with ourselves… An often overlooked subject is the well-being of physicians, nurses, residents and other caregivers, who in Houston alone, provide care for over 6 million patients annually. In this session, we will explore the effects of stress and burnout on physicians, review causes and early-signs, how to cope and plan for recovery; outline the Chopra Center’s Ayurvedic approach to healthy living; and review the Texas Medical Association’s efforts to organize Physician Health Programs.


Maggie Grueskin Maggie is the Owner / Director of Ekam Yoga Center, voted as Houston area’s #1 Yoga studio by The Houston Press 2010. She started ‘Operation Homefront’, a non-profit in Chicago to help the families of deployed soldiers and led a C.E.N. training on Negotiations for executive women at Ernst & Young. "I believe that work provides us the opportunity to share our innate skills and abilities, in the service of others."
