SAVE THE DATE:

SEPTEMBER 29 - OCTOBER 1, 2017

 

Being a physician is demanding and trying to balance a career in medicine with the responsibilities of home and personal life can at times seem impossible. Safe Harbour 2017 is all about taking a step back from the stresses of everyday life to rediscover the joys of being a physician and reinvigorate your passion for medicine. At this year's weekend retreat, we will focus on being resilient, being happy and living well.

 

Safe Harbour is a program of the NLMA Physician Care Network that gives physicians an opportunity to learn techniques and practices that will lead to a fulfilling career and balanced life. The retreat is set amidst the scenic backdrop of Trinity Bay at the world-class Fishers' Loft. The workshops are also open to spouses/partners and the retreat is family-friendly with a number of outdoor excursions and activities from which to choose.

 

 

This Year's Theme:

 

The weekend wellness retreat will revolve around the theme of Life-Long Well-Being and Health and will examine aspects of Blue Zones, a concept used to identify a demographic or geographic area of the world where people live measurably longer lives.
