What is PennMedicine Together?
COVID-19 is triggering complex emotions, anxiety and fear. The anxiety associated with this crisis is profound and based entirely in reality. The perceived “real root” of anxiety may differ for each of us, but the real root is ultimately the virus itself. We each contribute what we can. The PennMedicineTogether effort hopes to offer resources and strategies to help people cope, which we all do differently.
The Workforce Wellness Committee is committed to providing support for you and your family during this difficult time. Through still-developing and ongoing initiatives, carefully curated resources, and responsiveness to your feedback, we are here for you, and we are all in this together: PennMedicineTogether.
