Dr. Gurland Chosen As Wellness Director

July 29, 2020

Dr. Brooke Gurland has been selected as the Department's new Faculty Wellness Director. A clinical professor in the Division of General Surgery's colorectal section, Gurland is also Director of Stanford's Pelvic Health Center. She was a proponent of the Center's "Zen Den" and offered daily yoga classes for children and adults during the initial COVID-19 surge.

For her first act as director, Gurland is hosting a special Town Hall on Tuesday, August 4 with SHC Chief Wellness Officer Dr. Tait Shanefelt to discuss the unique needs of faculty with young/school-age children.

Gurland succeeds Dr. Venita Chandra, who left the position earlier this year to pursue a new opportunity as the vascular surgery residency program director.
