This week I’m at the CHIME 2017 Fall Forum in San Antonio. It’s a great event that is no doubt the largest gathering of healthcare CIOs in one place. Today they kicked off the event with a great keynote speech from Kelly McGonigal that reframed stress in a really unique way. Here are some of the tweets that captured the essence of Kelly’s message.

You can see there are some powerful reframes when it comes to stress. It’s amazing the impact that just thinking of stress as a positive thing in your life can have on the outcomes. That’s a lesson we can all use since we all experience stress.

Along with the keynote, CHIME also did a great tribute to Neal Patterson, CEO of Cerner who passed away recently. It was very nice to take a moment to talk about Neal and his impact on the healthcare IT industry.
