Have you ever had a persistent symptom that just won’t stop bugging you? Maybe you’re struggling with fatigue, or your gut is constantly irritated? The causes of symptoms like these are often hard to get to the bottom of — and believe it or not, sometimes they may be caused by a problem somewhere else in your body that you might think is unrelated. But how do you find the root cause and treat the problem?
Join us in the Oak Room for a nutritious three-course meal from the PALM Café and a discussion from Dr. Kevin Cloninger, Director of Well-Being Coaching. The search for greater well-being, greater self-understanding, and greater health and happiness is as old as the hills. Wellness is much more than “self-care,” buying fitness trackers, or doing the latest fad diet, but in the current media environment it is hard to tell. In this presentation, Dr. Kevin Cloninger will look at a more expansive definition of, and approach to, wellness and what is actually needed to improve both mental and physical health. He will also discuss why there is perhaps nothing of greater importance than the search for well-being as we face the multiple overlapping crises of our times.

But what does it look like to work towards a goal of “living healthier” or “losing weight”? Can you clearly envision the steps you need to take to get there?
