Mind and Matter - The Brain-Body Connection
Rosie Pasqualini | November 30, 2023
Please join us Thursday at 2:00 pm CST for this week's weekly webinar featuring Rosie Pasqualini.

More about this week's webinar, we often think of the mind and the body as being distinct from one another. Yet we also know that our mental health and physical health are closely linked. In this week's webinar, LEAP! program assistant Rosie Pasqualini will explore key ways in which the well-being of our brains and our bodies are intertwined. We'll discuss the gut-brain axis, the mental and physical components of a stress response and more! We hope you'll join us.
