Event description
The Politics of Chronic Disease. How the American mind has been hacked… from sugar to cell phones and how modern stress is making us sick.

About this Event

From sugar to cellphones, the American mind is being hacked. Meanwhile, the business and politics surrounding chronic disease seem to only add to our modern stress and sickness. Here's how to do something about it.

What we will cover: In addition to the politics and big business that is Health in America, we’ll talk about nutrition, mood, depression, and stress resilience. We’ll discuss how the American diet is related to depression and anxiety, and how increasing stress resillience can exponentially improve health outcomes.

What is making America a sick nation? Is it drugs, processed foods, and technology addiction? Is the cultural chasing of rewards and pleasure proving to be unhealthy? What’s affecting our mental health, and must we disengage from these influences in order to reestablish ourselves on a path to wellness?

We hope you will attend this timely and heartfelt TEDxSalon on Wellness 2.0 featuring two powerhouse speakers on Stress and Chronic Disease in America: Elissa Epel, Ph.D. and Robert H. Lustig, MD, MSL.

This SALON includes a pre-show networking gathering with our 600+ attendees, including a small showcase of interesting companies and services.

Community gathering begins at 6:45 pm. Presentations at 8 pm and end by 9:45 pm

This event is 18 & Over only
