The Provider Power Hour

Trust. It's the foundation of success for every manner of healthcare provider—whether your are treating patients, collaborating with colleagues, mentoring students or interacting with funders.

But now, the age-old methods of building trust are being challenged by everything from changing regulations to technology, and in-person communications is being replaced with digital interactions. So, how can healthcare workers not only do their jobs but embrace the new normal in order to establish and strengthen relationships and achieve their professional goals? 

Since the moment "COVID-19" became a staple in our vocabulary, Karen Kaufman and her team have focused on guiding professionals in a variety of industries toward solutions to these challenges. Karen's new seminar, Elevating Your Virtual Leadership Presence,™ has received rave reviews. She has enthusiastically adapted this program for our Provider Power Hour to specifically support members of  Komen Philadelphia's community health partner network.

During your time together, Karen will lead a discussion on the art and science of relationship-building and asserting your professional presence in today's virtual world.
