#COMPASSIONOMICS DAILY: Chief Medical Officers have lots of stress, but only some get burned out. Others don't. What did @Penn researchers find was their key to resilience (vs burnout)? #Compassion for others #medtwitter @KandiWiens @anniemckee @HarvardBiz
#COMPASSIONOMICS DAILY: Some studies (example below) suggest that #female healthcare providers are more #compassionate than #male counterparts. But that's no excuse guys! Abundant research shows that anyone can get better at #compassion, if you really try.
Thank you @TCUalumni and @fwmdschool for selecting #COMPASSIONOMICS for the TCU Alumni Book Club! It was truly an honor to be with you tonight.
Great to see everyone who came out tonight to enjoy the TCU book club launch with the @fwmdschool!
