March Topic: Optimizing Blood Sugar for Mental and Physical Health and Performance

Did you know blood sugar can vary widely throughout the day, impacting your mood, feelings of anxiety, and energy levels? Fortunately, you can adapt behaviors that help stabilize these effects and increase your energy and vitality. If you want to learn more about blood sugar, discover how certain behaviors influence it and understand how it impacts your physical, mental, and emotional well-being, please join Dr. Kay Durst and registered dietitian Lauren Zimmerman for an educational and insightful discussion on this topic on March 18 at 9 a.m.
