OSUMC, Columbus, OH—LECTURE: Direct Primary Care: Transforming Patient and Physician Wellness
January 19, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
All are welcome to attend this FREE lunch lecture event, Direct Primary Care: Transforming Patient and Physician Wellness. The BRI-OSU chapter teamed up with the wellness council at OSU medical school to host a lunch talk with Dr. Heather Bartlett, a local DPC physician, owner and founder of The Bartlett Medical Clinic & Wellness Center. She will talk about how her practice works and how it enhances her patients’—and her own—overall wellness. We will be serving Jimmy Johns subs. The wellness council will be supplying the food and Coke will provide the drinks.
Those who RSVP within 48 hours of the event will be guaranteed food. There is convenient parking at the 9th Ave garage across the street.
POST-EVENT SUMMARY: Fifty students and faculty attended the talk. Dr. Bartlett began by giving her story, talking about all the problems in the current healthcare system that she encountered during her early years as a physician. She then talked about the process of starting her own DPC clinic, and talked about all the ways that DPC can cut costs to provide enormous value to patients. She also talked about all the ways that her practice has saved her own personal wellness, which is important in the face of so much physician burnout.
Many students stayed 45 minutes after the talk was over to ask questions – there was tons of interest in DPC! One medical student even said that she planned to open a DPC practice in the future. A pre-med student there talked with Dr. Bartlett afterwards to organize a talk for a broader undergraduate audience as well.
Dr. Bartlett did a phenomenal job and was a lot of fun to listen to. I would recommend her to any other chapter looking to host a DPC physician and also for the 2018 Leadership Conference.” ~Morgan Kohls, BRI-OSU chapter president
