Presenter: Michelle Simon, PhD, ND

 

The pandemic of COVID-19 has focused our global attention on the importance of immune function. Individual abilities to withstand illness are always a topic of interest, but now even more so. We know that those with chronic disease are at greater risk. They are, generally, less resilient. What makes us resilient? How can we increase our resilience? Dr. Simon will address these questions with evidence-informed approaches frequently used by naturopathic medicine providers.
