The events at the Boston Marathon were overwhelming and incomprehensible for all.
BMC Wellness Program
Welcome to the BMC Wellness Program Website where you can explore questions and concerns about yourself and colleagues. The BMC Wellness Program is a resource for all providers, teachers and staff at BMC. Wellness can be supported across many domains: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, relationship, religious, and social. This website provides information on existing programs and opportunities to help cope with work or personal problems and to promote wellness and health. Most resources are available to everyone, but some are specific for employees at BMC or BU, for BMC residents/fellows, or for BU students.
The Spring Employee Wellness campaign is offering a number of activities and resources, as indicated on this website, to promote wellness. During times of stress we need to ensure that we provide the same exceptional care to ourselves as we do for our patients. The content listed will provide you with numerous opportunities to enhance your sense of well-being and we encourage all BU and BMC staff to select activities of your choice.
|Boston suffered a terrible trauma in the awful Marathon bombings and their aftermath. Many of our staff stepped forward during the crisis to respond with the utmost skill and compassion, and will continue to do so in the weeks and months ahead. Please consult the following resources that may provide you with support and comfort.
