Wellness Initiatives with the Brigham Education Institute
The BEI strives to create a sustainable culture of wellness to provide Brigham physicians, trainees, and all staff with the tools to combat stress through a series of programs and events. Through these programs the BEI aims to support the Brigham community with stress management tools to prevent burnout, therefore producing more engaged care-givers who can provide higher quality care to their patients.
Upcoming BWell Events
Wellness Programs Through our Partners
As part of an effort to enhance BWH Physician Wellness, we invite you to participate in the Brigham-to-Table initiative this summer. Brigham-to-Table funds groups of BWH faculty members to go out for meals at restaurants around Boston as a means of promoting faculty wellness and the funding has been graciously granted through the BWPO BeWell Initiative. Our website is now live and accepting reservations throughout the summer at 16 participating locations around Boston; the website has a detailed explanation of the program goals, logistics, and how to sign up. Groups of 3-5 faculty from a single department/division — or up to 8 faculty from more than 1 department/division — can request a meal (lunch or dinner) at one of the participating locations of their choice and we take care of making the reservation and payment for the meal. The goal is to provide enriching conversation and foster connections among the remarkable colleagues at our institution. The program will run through early September.

Book clubs have been known to transform reading, an essentially solitary activity, into a communal experience. We thought such a transformation would be helpful for personal growth and discovery, but also to create a more vibrant, connected, interdisciplinary, BWH community. To support personal and community exploration and development, the B-Well book club will feature a “curriculum” of 5 best-selling books, focused on: 1) Awareness of Self; 2) Balance; 3) Compassion for Self; 4) Determination, Grit, Resilience; and 5) Engagement
To join the book club, or for more information, please contact the following email.
