Justin Lintz will moderate this solutions-oriented session. We will discuss factors that contribute to burnout, and discuss some broad measures for early detection of, and recovery from, burnout. A panel of practitioners will discuss these factors in the context of their own experiences and focus on solutions that everyone in the audience can factor into their daily lives and work.
Panelists are still to be announced, and will be added here as they are confirmed.
