Understanding and Managing Isolation During Uncertain Times.

The state of fluctuating stress that social isolation causes can have extremely detrimental effects on a person's mental, emotional and even physical health

COVID-19 is affecting employees across all sectors across the entire world in many ways from a subclinical illness to death. But as most of us are isolating from the hazard, is that creating additional health risks? Dr. Julianne Holt-Lunstad, a professor of psychology and neuroscience at Brigham Young University, has found that a lack of robust social connections can raise one's health risks as much as smoking 15 cigarettes a day or misusing/abusing alcohol -- that's twice as much as obesity's impact would be.

Join us for a webinar replay with Dr. David Batman, to learn the impact isolation has on our mental and physical health.
