When you hear the word stress, what comes to mind?  Is there a difference between types of stressors, and how do they interact with our health? What is considered “rest,” and why is this important?
In this program, Dr. Julita Baker will share a scientific approach to thinking about the stress response, food choice, and health. We will delve into the research surrounding the above questions, and leave the presentation with pragmatic tips to utilizing the stress response in a way that is beneficial to our long term health.
