Dr. Elissa Epel and Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn: Stress, Resilience, and Healthy Aging

Does stress really age us? Everyone experiences different levels of stress from family, friends, work, or just uncertainty in the world. And while we can’t avoid living with stress, we can learn how to embrace it and transform it.

Stress scientist Dr. Elissa Epel and Nobel Prize winner Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn will discuss the latest science on how we age and the role of stress and well-being. They will also address what we can do to improve mental health and slow aging.

Hear more on how to develop a more robust mindset and “stress better.”
