O’Hara, MD, MPH, TCTSY-F, a board certified child abuse pediatrician, a CHAMP Mentor and an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Columbia University Medical Center, has developed the course Caring with Compassion. It provides the opportunity to pause, reflect, and expand your self-knowledge and perspective. It is an opportunity to deepen your self-compassion.
