Webinar: Emotional Resilience & Stress: USing Stress to Achieve Peak Performance

Presented by: Kelsey Loushin

Stress is a fact of life, something we cannot avoid.  However, did you know that stress can be beneficial? Learning how to change our thinking and our body's response to stress can support us at work, at home, and in other areas of life. This program will teach strategies to develop resiliency, "the bounce back factor," so stress can become a performance-enhancing tool instead of something we want to avoid and allow to negatively impact our lives.  


B.E.A.T. (Blood Pressure Education Achieves Targets)

September 10 - October 31, Health Science Campus

Improve your blood pressure and lifestyle behaviors throughout this 8-week program.  The program will begin with two in-person group workshops to teach you the basics about blood pressure.  The next five weeks will be self-guided using the program parameters.  During the final week, the group will meet one final time to recap and set long term goals to help you continue your success.  Throughout the 8-weeks, walk-in hours will be offered which will provide you the opportunity to meet 1:1 with either a pharmacist or health coach to talk about your individual goals. 

Elevated blood pressure can damage your body for years before you show any symptoms.  Treatment and lifestyle changes can help control your blood pressure and reduce risk of complications.  B.E.A.T. is designed to teach you the necessary skills to improve your blood pressure, while also empowering you to stay on track and accountable to yourself.

Blood pressure: tracking blood pressure consistently is an important step to managing hypertension and preventing related health conditions such as stroke and heart attack.

Skin scope: this tool allows you to see sun damage, age spots and other skin imperfections which can be an early detection to skin conditions that need to be addressed with a medical professional.

Webinar: Mindful Parents, Mindful Families

September 25, 2019 12:00 p.m. -1:00 p.m. (link to access the webinar will be available closer to the event date)

Presented by: Daron Larson

If we want to raise our children to be mindful, resilient adults, we need to cultivate these capacities ourselves.  We can teach our children how to disrupt drama, de-escalate their reactions, and regulate their emotions by practicing these important skills in our own lives.  Learn how to pass on mindful habits without using the eye-roll-triggering works "mindfulness" at all.
