Recent & Upcoming Events, Including Official Book Launch!

It's been a very full and meaningful few weeks since the release of my fourth book, Recapturing Joy in Medicine. I am so grateful for the extremely positive response from so many physicians, residency directors, attendings, residents, medical students, physicians in practice, medical school faculty, and other clinicians. I have also been so touched by the many people who have purchased copies to give as gifts to their physicians! It has been heartwarming to dedicate those books to my colleagues knowing they will receive such an encouraging and valuable gift from patients who appreciate and value them. How special!

These physicians will be able to use the book as an encouraging, inspiring, practical resource throughout their careers. After a long journey full of obstacles and challenges that could have easily derailed and halted its publication, the book is already making a difference among my colleagues. I couldn't be happier!

Here's an abridged summary of recent and upcoming events that links to my new website. This includes information about the official book launch, which will take place August 4th in Winter Park, Florida. I'm also thrilled to have started a book study with female physicians in Orlando. Our first meeting was inspiring, hopeful, healing ... and I can't wait to read through the book and work on the practical exercises together!

Yes, I plan to use my book, too, as the coaching manual it is, especially as I enter into an exciting season of serving my colleagues, residents, medical students, hospitals, clinics, and the entire medical team in new ways now that the book is available. Truth is, we would all benefit from such a resource!

Thank you to the wonderful women who contributed so much to the success of our first meeting this week. If you are a female physician (MD, DO, or MBBS) in the Orlando area and would like to join us, please let me know here.

Earlier this month, I wrote a July 1st message for new interns, residents, and all physicians. You may read it here, and feel free to share it with others. We're all in this together!

Joyfully,
Dr. Mari (Amaryllis)
