"Our Healing Connections" began as a project for nurses by nurses who were determined to help their peers deal with the stress and burnout endemic to the field, and which the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated.

Room To Reflect (R2R) is a project begun by nurses for nurses to help their peers deal with the stress and burnout endemic to the field, worsened by COVID-19

Nancy Farish, Jeanell Webb-Jones, and Jane Muir began working together on "Room to Reflect" a program which encourages healthcare workers to give themselves permission to address their stress through the use of mobile "resiliency toolkits", a box of physical and digital tools designed to encourage care for mental health and wellness. In 2021, these clinicians were invited by UVA's President Ryan to scale the project up.
