The MSV Foundation (MSVF) has been on the forefront of tackling physician wellness. Our wellness programs are designed to help physicians navigate the stressors of today's ever-changing health care landscape and prioritize their well-being.
Since 2014, MSV has offered workshops, trainings and keynote presentations to over 2,000 physicians and health care organizations across the Commonwealth. View a full list of presentations by our wellness expert, Lynne Hughes (pictured below), here.
“Lynne Hughes gives a powerful talk that is very pertinent for all health care providers to hear as we deal with a multitude of obstacles every day. Her insights help shift our focus so that we can take better care of our patients and ourselves.”

Infuse 2018 provided an intentional moment for physicians to think about themselves, explore their passions, and connect with the joy in practicing medicine. The summit infused panels discussions, creative demonstrations, artistic fusion and culinary offerings to create an experience that was unlike any other conference.
