The Well-Being Advocate Network provided a lifeline to us during one of the most difficult times in our personal and professional careers during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Having a weekly meeting with the other advocates gave us a safe place to help and support each other personally along with sharing best practices to help us better care for the people in our departments.  This is an incredible network of people who are passionate and devoted to improving the lives of all the care takers here at Michigan Medicine.
