Healthy Habits for the Holiday Season

Please join us on Tuesday November 19th, 2013 at 4 pm pacific / 7 pm eastern as we host Hawthorn faculty member Dr. Eric Wood, ND for a webinar entitled "Healthy Habits for the Holiday Season."

The holiday season can be a time to share and celebrate with family and friends. Often the holidays add stress to our lives with extra events, shopping, and increased intake of sweets and party foods.

This webinar will discuss tips and strategies to support health and minimize stress and many of the potential downsides of the holiday season including weight gain, depression, increased colds and flu, sleep problems and more.

Join us for this webinar and make this holiday season a joyous and healthy time.
