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 the health of employees across the entire world in many ways. But as most of us are isolating from the physical hazard of subclinical illness or even death, are we 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 alcohol – that's twice as much as obesity's impact on our physical health.

Join us for a webinar replay with Dr. David Batman to learn how isolation influences our mental and physical health outcomes.
