Moving towards wellness

Live webinar July 6, 2021
half-day session 1 to 4 p.m. EST

Susan Geary, PhD

Do you feel stretched to your limits through this COVID period? If so, you are not alone. Many individuals struggle with general and workplace well-being as the pandemic continues. What is also typical in the health and human service professions is that we tend to think of others’ needs before we think of ourselves. In addition, research has identified that most of us are working harder than ever before.

This webinar will provide you the opportunity to focus on your own wellness needs and determine what you can do to have a greater sense of well-being.
