The Baltimore/Annapolis, MD Chapter Brings Home this Hot Topic
Submitted by Lora Graetzer, FAADOM, Baltimore/Annapolis, MD Chapter Vice President
The BAM Chapter (Baltimore/Annapolis,MD) of AADOM hosted Lynne Leggett to learn strategies for dealing with BURNOUT. This course was a hot topic at the 2022 National Conference and we were so excited to bring it home to our Chapter! Lynne taught us the definition of burnout which is, “a state of physical or emotional exhaustion that also involves a sense of reduced accomplishment and loss of personal identity”. She then led us as we participated in a self-test to see where we are currently, learned tips to how to identify & prevent burnout and help our team members if they are struggling with burnout.
We enjoyed a lite breakfast, worked in pairs, and shared our thoughts with the group. It was a great morning and we hope that this course is able to bring some relief to our members and their teams!
