It’s February: when valentines are shared with loved ones and spring is just around the corner. Yet, like every month in America, 1 in 4 deaths will be caused by heart disease. More than 800,000 die from cardiovascular problems every year in the US — approximately one person every 37 seconds.
In this Lunch and Learn, world-renowned psychiatrist Dr. C. Robert Cloninger, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Washington University in St. Louis and Director of the Anthropedia Institute, will describe how to recognize and cultivate personality traits that help us to live more healthy, satisfying, and meaningful lives. Using the Temperament and Character Inventory, which he developed, he will identify how the way we learned to adapt to life’s challenges and opportunities affects our physical, mental, and social well-being.
