We are excited to be partnering with KIMA Wellness for an event that explores the impact of work on our health and wellbeing and ways we can have a more integrated, mindful approach to thriving in both our personal and professional lives.

Did you know that work is the fifth leading cause of death in America? In this session, Leigh Stringer will share findings from her recently released book, “The Healthy Workplace,” including the latest research from sports science, physiology, nutrition, occupational health, behavioral and environmental psychology.
