About the event

Self-Care is often talked about, but how are we prioritizing this to avoid secondary trauma, burnout and compassion fatigue? How do we promote self-care in immigrant communities, where this concept may be foreign to them? Please join the Upstate IVC team and their guests in exploring this topic and sharing ways we put our mental, physical and emotional health first.
