Be Well Physicians

Be Well Physicians is a program from Butte-Glenn Medical Society to provide social and individual wellness support for physicians. Physicians are often focused on taking care of others. The demands on physicians have increased. Stress and burnout are being reported at higher levels than ever before. We can help.

Please stay tuned as we are redesigning our resources for 2024.
