    FRIDAY'S SPEAKERS 


    JASMIN HALEY “The Future of Diversity”

    Dental professionals value the role that diversity contributes to society. Diversity has evolved and includes more than race and ethnicity. Many diverse populations are underserved or overlooked. There are a number of populations that have growing evidence of health disparities. Dental professionals must prepare themselves for the future of diversity and develop strategies to provide the best patient-centered care. (3 CE Hours)


    KARI CARTER-CHERELUS
    “Strategic Solutions Used to Address and Manage Burnout”

    According to the World Health Organization, burnout syndrome is a result of chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed. Healthcare providers suffer from burnout at an alarming rate. Healthcare providers who suffer from burnout may deliver less than satisfactory patient care due to their overwhelming stress level. This interactive discussion will provide an overview on how to identify burnout, as well as provides strategies a clinician can take to overcome its damaging effects. (3 CE Hours)
