Community Panel: Angela M. Douglas and Randi Bregman
Angela Douglas and Randi Bregman of Vera House will facilitate a discussion of how anti-racism and anti-oppression work are a vital part of partner relationships with our community. Building trust and engagement requires leveraging our values and institutional power to invest in ally and accomplice work.

Panel members will include Monu Chhetri, Lindsay Ryan, Koy Adams, LoriKim Alexander, Tanner Effinger, Sequoia Kemp, and Mike Leonelli.
Keynote: Kenneth Ginsburg, MD, MSEd
Caring professionals are at increased risk of burnout because of their continued exposure to the most passionate themes of human existence. In this talk, Dr. Ginsburg will discuss principles of self-care and internal resilience to help us all take the steps we need to replenish ourselves.
