Book worms unite!! This relatively new group has been quite a hit! The book club meets every few months to discuss a book (and life!). In our most recent book club we read Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown. We discussed resilience and isolation and how that connects to both the the hospital and everyday life, self-care, and gratitude. The group had lots of laughs as people shared what their “ingredients” are for joy. Stay tuned for future events!
The mission of the Health Equity track is to train the next generation of clinicians committed to caring for disadvantaged and vulnerable populations. The curriculum focuses on developing knowledge and the toolsets needed to address these health inequities in the clinical setting, leading to becoming well-versed in medical and social conditions common to domestic vulnerable populations.In accordance with the ACGME’s CLER Pathways to Excellence and as part of our curriculum in social determinants of health and health equity, the Health Equity team provides information related to equity and disparities on a weekly basis to accompany our ambulatory Yale Office Based Medicine curriculum. When applicable, each week community resource/tip to address health care inequities is also provided. Please email Dr. Steele if interested to join.
