But how do we find the beauty that often lays hidden amidst the stress of caring?
    Join Dr. Monisha Vasa and Cayce Howe as we discuss ways to create "Sustainability Caring".

    Dr. Vater: How to SMILE through Challenges

    Laura B. Vater, MD, MPH is a Hematology/Oncology Fellow at Indiana University School of Medicine.
    Influenced by her mom, an Internal Medicine physician, and dad, a safety engineer and community leader, she developed an early interest in medicine and care for humanity. Throughout her medical training, Laura has remained interested in preventive health, the vital role of communication and humanism in medicine, and promotion of clinician health.

Relatable! I love this podcast!

As someone who is new to meditation & mindfulness, I found that this podcast was unique in the way that each episode is topical and digestible for my mind! I’m always looking for ways to improve my emotional health. It’s not always easy to incorporate meditation and self reflection into my daily routine but listening to Cayce & Monisha talk about things relatable to my life has made all the difference. They’re experts...but not at all intimidating or overwhelming. They both bring a lot of wisdom to the table & I’m really grateful that this podcast is accessible here and on they’re website. I highly recommend this podcast if you’re looking to get a solid foundation & actually learn the ins and outs of bringing mindfulness and good vibes to your work/home/personal relationships.
