Prioritizing self-care

July 11, 2018
Posted In: Letters

ATSU is bustling with activity, and this issue of Still Magazine captures some of the highlights from the University community. ATSU schools are completing their 125th anniversary projects. Faculty and staff are using knowledge and skills in unique ways, locally and internationally. Alumni are making important contributions in their communities, and ATSU’s technology and innovation never cease to amaze.

With changes happening around us every day, it can be difficult to keep our focus and take care of ourselves. In this issue’s cover story, alumni and faculty discuss the importance of avoiding and overcoming burnout and keeping their joy. While the article focuses on healthcare providers, burnout is a universal topic extending beyond healthcare to all professions.

Personally, I find joy in time spent with my family. Professionally, I find joy in seeing our students grow and learn. It’s always satisfying to see them achieve their goals and leave ATSU equipped for their journey in healthcare. My hope is alumni, of all ages, will reconnect with the reasons they chose healthcare and make self-care a top priority.

Yours in service,

Craig M. Phelps, DO, ’84, president
