They’re following the advice of Lucy Hobbs Project guest speaker Dr. Carmelina D’Arro.

Today at the Duncan Center in Dover, members of the Delaware Dental Hygienists’ Association learn “mindfulness practice for self-care and for excellent patient care” through the one-day program “Don’t Just Do Something, Sit There”.

D’Arro, a public health dentist in Wilmington, Delaware and the former dental director of Henrietta Johnson Medical Center teaches Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR). In her current mission to promote the self-care of health care providers so they can offer the best care to their patients, she shares a wealth of knowledge from her studies at the University of Pennsylvania Program for Mindfulness Teacher Practicum, along with 20 years of meditation practice and 10 of yoga study.
