DC area wellness resources

Home / Healthy Physicians / About the Foundation / DC area wellness resources

The advantage to practicing medicine in the DC area is there are numerous resources when it comes to addressing wellbeing and burnout. Below are some local resources we encourage you to use if needed. MSDC resources and our partners' resources are highlighted.




VIDA Fitness, the Health and Wellness Partner for MSDC's Healthy Physician Program, is working to continuously improve the health and wellness of our healthcare professionals and their patients. We believe that exercise and nutrition are critical components of the health care continuum along with a restful night’s sleep. VIDA Fitness provides each new client with a personalized onboarding service to set realistic goals and identify potential roadblocks.  We have worked with our Medical Advisory Board to create a referral pathway for physicians and medical providers to help their patients make long-term lifestyle changes.  One example is the Evolve Wellness Program, which is our approach to comprehensive wellness. 

Evolve is an insurance eligible, results driven program available virtually or in person.  Each participant receives an initial assessment, personalized attention, and group socialization throughout the 12-week program.  VIDA’s board-certified registered dietitians lead each session and participants have unlimited access to our exercise facilities and group fitness classes.  Click here for a full program overview.  Most CareFirst members pay nothing out-of-pocket.  Non-CareFirst members may use Health Savings or Flex Spending Account (HSA/FSA) funds for the program.
