Sara Poplau is the Operations Director for the Institute for Professional Worklife. 

Ms. Poplau’s areas of research include medical provider satisfaction and wellness, as well as burnout prevention. She has partnered with Mark Linzer, MD, a national authority on provider wellness, to conduct scientific research and make improvements in the health care system to decrease stressors and promote well-being among providers. 

Ms. Poplau has considerable experience running a grant-funded national demonstration project to test workplace interventions to improve provider satisfaction. Her research and assessment of the program have given her insights into how to implement effective provider wellness programs. She, as all members of the IPW, looks forward to learning and working with you on your journey to wellness at your site.
