**NEW LOCATION/TIME: Impact of Microaggressions on Wellness

Microaggressions are the everyday nonverbal and verbal slights or snubs that are often the behavioral manifestations of unconscious bias.  Microaggressions occur in the daily work and education environment.  In and of themselves, microaggressions may appear harmless but they can accumulate over the course of a day, week or career impacting individuals’ engagement in the work environment as well as their wellness.  We will explore the relationships between microaggression and personal wellness.  Allies and bystander interventions can impact an individual’s experiences and potentially improve individual well-being. We will explore these relationships and describe ways to intervene and support our colleagues and trainees as allies.
