CULTIVATING WELLBEING IN OUR LIVES AND COMMUNITIES

While providing access to health care and fixing a system that is badly broken are laudable goals, there is a growing recognition that a more fundamental and sustainable strategy is to support people and communities in cultivating wellbeing. Dr. Kreitzer will discuss the determinants of wellbeing and highlight strategies that lead to human flourishing. She will also discuss why empowering people and communities to assume more personal responsibility for their health and wellbeing is becoming an economic imperative for the nation.

Reception immediately following in the Billings Library Apse

The lecture is free and open to the public.
