STFM Bar Trivia at The Lucky Bar 

Sunday, May 6, 7 pm
Location: The Lucky Bar, 1221 Connecticut Avenue NW. (Dupont Circle Neighborhood)
Bar phone: 202.331.3733 

Question: How many states border only 1 other state?  
Answer: 1 (Maine)


Bar trivia with host (and STFMer) Will Dixon. Fun format involves game theory and problem solving; topics include politics, science, history, geography, sports, and more! Begins at 7 pm and will last about 2.5 hours. Come early to ensure you have a spot as the bar may run out of room!   

Directions: From the hotel, Lucky Bar is 1.8 miles straight down Connecticut avenue towards the White House. It’s a nice walk that passes over Rock Creek Park, but the fastest and easiest way to get there is to take the metro: you can get on at Woodley Park right by the hotel (trivia: escalators for this stop are the longest in DC!) and take the train towards Glenmont. You will only travel one stop and get out at the Dupont Circle stop. Exit the station on the south side towards 19th St, and head south on Connecticut. The Lucky Bar is one block south of the circle, on the left (east) side as your travel south in between N St and M St. Look for the green awning.


Moving From Burnout to Wellness: Understanding the Problem and Identifying Solutions

Monday, May 7, 5:45 pm
Location: Robert Graham Center for Policy Studies, 1133 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC  20036 

Directions from hotel:  Metro Red line from hotel (Woodley Park) in-bound to Farragut North. Use Connecticut and & L Street NW station exit. Walk approximately 0.1 mi. northwest to your destination. You will pass the Mayflower Hotel and H&M. The Graham Center is next door to H&M.

Physician burnout is increasingly recognized as a threat to the nation’s health workforce and to delivering population health, higher quality of care, and reduced cost. It is estimated that two-thirds of family physicians report at least one element of burnout and family medicine is among the top five medical specialties reporting burnout. Physicians facing burnout are at higher risk of drug and alcohol abuse as well as suicide. This problem impacts not only physicians but it has also been linked to lower patient satisfaction, higher medical error rates and higher physician and staff turnover. As we strive towards meeting the quadruple aim of health care it becomes increasingly important to look for effective strategies to help combat burnout, not only from bright spots within the medical community, but also leaders in other industries that are tackling this problem. 

Join us for a primary care forum that explores this important topic and starts to offer solutions to move us from burnout to wellness. Cocktail reception to follow at a local establishment. Please RSVP your attendance to
