You probably know it’s important to reduce stress for your mental health, but did you know stress can impact your body all the way down to the level of gene expression and immune system activation?

On Wednesday, Jan. 19, at 4 p.m. PT/ 7 p.m. ET, George Slavich, Ph.D., will join Julie Foucher, MD, for a live Q&A-style webinar focused on stress and its effects on health.

Dr. Slavich is a leading research expert and the founding director of the Laboratory for Stress Assessment and Research at UCLA. His area of focus is psychoneuroimmunology, which examines the effect of the mind on health and resistance to disease.

By integrating tools from psychology, neuroscience, immunology, biology, genetics, and genomics, Dr. Slavich’s research has provided new insights into the body’s inflammatory response to social stress, paving the way for a new field of research called human social genomics.

This conversation is part of a series of monthly CrossFit Health community webinars where Dr. Foucher interviews experts in the field of health and wellness.

Space is limited. If you would like to join this webinar, please register here.
