Mar

2:00 pm

You're invited to attend a webinar hosted by Nancy A. Alvarez, PharmD, BCPS, FAPhA, associate dean for Academic and Professional Affairs at The University of Arizona College of Pharmacy – Phoenix, for a webinar about overcoming personal limitations and setbacks, on March 10 at 2 p.m.

About this webinar

Everyone has a story and no two are alike! As life progresses, individuals are uniquely positioned to consider who they are being and who they wish to become. The ability to be who we are being is impacted by early life, cultural and social norms, and gender. These experiences can be limiting, and promote inertia or fuel curiosity, discovery, and produce action.

Dr. Alvarez will narrate the tale of subtle and seismic shifts in perspective based upon increasing awareness, especially in the area of gender and other diversity and inclusiveness concepts, to influence who she is being and who she wishes to become. She shares past and current circumstances as a function of the choices she made, and how she generates new experiences through the conscious selection of alternative choices. Peek through the viewfinder to see what crucible moments have allowed her to view personal limitations and setbacks with self-compassion instead of self-judgment and shame for not being “perfect”. She will offer attendees ideas for their self-discovery, deepened learning, and potential for forwarding action.
