Dr. Barbara Loeb, is an author, speaker, mentor, facilitator, and physician leader. She is committed to promoting well-being, especially for people working within healthcare.
She believes that individuals devoted to caring for others often fail to take care of themselves. Her work is focused on inspiring caregivers to do just that.
Dr. Loeb started her 40-year career in health care as a primary care physician growing an internal medicine group practice that provided care to thousands of patients and multiple generations of families.
After transitioning her practice to become part of Advocate Aurora Health, she moved into a number of chief medical officer roles for other health systems, hospitals, physician networks, and health plans.
She also served as an independent consultant for the Studer Group, sharing her expertise on improving physician communication and leadership skills.
In her first book “How to Save a Life: Healing Power of Poetry”, Dr. Loeb utilizes the principles of presence, reflection, self-awareness, and self-compassion to create poetry that brings us along on her personal healer’s journey.
She inspires the reader to reflect on their own individual path to well-being through self-expression, creativity, and discovery of inner wisdom.
To cultivate her own well-being, she developed her own restorative ritual. It combines mindfulness, writing, and building deeper connections with her patients and colleagues. She intensified this practice during the challenges of the pandemic.
Dr. Loeb shares this knowledge and facilitates learning with colleagues through speaking, writing, and mentoring. Her focus is on building mindfulness and promoting the humanities in healthcare.
