Public Health Epidemiology Conversations Podcast

Episode #23 Importance of Reflection and Best Use of Resources

Avoid information overload!

It is important to reflect on the abundance of information that we take in from the many resources that are available to us. In this episode I discuss some ways to reflect and take away the messages from each episode that speak to your situation and help you face your challenges. I also discuss how to access the resources that I make available to everyone and ways to put them to good use.
