    The Better Together Project: Virtual Edition

    To coincide with the start of the medical new year, TFSL will host its inaugural virtual event, The Better Together Project on July 9, 2020. This full day event will run from 10am-5pmEDT with a virtual Happy Hour to follow. It will be a fun and informative way for the spouses and partners of physicians to come together in community, and leave feeling more connected, encouraged, empowered and supported. It is believed that The Better Together Project is the first event in Canada created especially for physician (trainee) families. An extraordinary speaker line up has been curated from across Canada and the USA, the majority of speakers are married to physicians. Speakers will provide relatable and inspirational content that will be relevant to all physician spouses, regardless of where they are on their own personal journey.

    The event will be recorded, and all ticket holders will have access to watch the replay at their convenience. The Flipside Life (TFSL) is a Canadian initiative established in October 2019, dedicated to supporting Physician Families by connecting the spouses and partners of medical students, residents and staff physicians. The founder of TFSL is Hayley Harlock from  Burlington, Ontario. Hayley holds a Master of Social Work degree, and previously practiced as a medical social worker at SickKids Hospital in Toronto. She is a mother of 3 school-aged children, and wife to vascular surgeon.

    Although still very much in its infancy, TFSL continues to support physician families in unique ways. Since March 2020, free weekly peer support calls for spouses of physicians and trainees have taken place. Individuals early on in their medical spouse journey have attended the calls, as well as veteran spouses whose partners are nearing the transition to retirement phase. Dual doc couples have also participated. Physician (and trainee) spouses and partners from Canada, the USA and even as far as New Zealand have joined the every growing TFSL community. Engagement is high, and the message is clear, physician families are under supported. All are welcome to attend. TFSL also provides a private Facebook group for its members to connect on as well. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hamilton/frontline-worker-therapy-1.5532212
