Join us at the first of the renewed talk series of BrainTalks@UBC.  Originally founded and directed by Dr. Maia Love in partnership with UBC and in coordination with the support of key individuals including Dr. Jonathan Fleming,  Dr. William Honer, and Dr. Max Cynader, this series is sparked by the passion of informing the public, professionals, and health care professionals, as to new trends in emerging medicine and health research. For doctors, the series is CME accredited.



For Health Care Professionals:

This April we have the pleasure of welcoming Dr. Marlon Danilewitz. Dr. Danilewitz has been involved in health care professional wellness and health both as a wellness officer and a researcher. His presentation includes beautiful visuals summarizing the current challenges facing health care professionals. 

For Professionals:

Dr. Maia Love will speak to burnout, burnout prevention, and new medical discoveries that can be used to recharge, re-connect, and be used daily for improved success at work and in your meaningful and valuable personal time. As a wellness and health professional, she will speak both to the Physician Health initiatives currently proposed by the CMA, as well as general approaches to mind clarity and work-life balance for professionals.

There will be a panel discussion at the end.
