why we staRted the adapt+overcome podcast podcast

In the face of a global pandemic, we entered a new battle, and healthcare workers became the new frontline heroes. To help them adapt and overcome this challenge, we assembled our own rapid response force of veterans who have been in the fray, and who had practical advice to share with those at the forefront of the fight against the coronavirus. The advice applies to anyone confronting a major challenge.

This series is dedicated to our brave nurses and healthcare workers and is produced in partnership with NuWest Healthcare which has staffed thousands of travel nurses for the coronavirus response and vaccination efforts across the nation.
