Is 2020 The Year of Resilience?

Jim Salge
An example of resilience, the Robbins' cinquefoil is a perennial that lives only above tree line in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. It had been placed on the endangered species list and now thrives thanks to restoration efforts.

Northeasterners, notably New Yorkers, have it. Westerners, including Californians, much less so. Resilience is now a top priority of the World Health Organization and an increasingly important component of our own health and wellness. One of the authors of a new, national study from Everyday Health, joins us to define resilience and discuss what it takes to increase our capacity.

Air date: Tuesday, January 7, 2020

GUEST:  Dr. Amit Sood, executive director of the Global Center for Resiliency and Well-Being; a former professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota; creator of Mayo Clinic Resilient Mind, and founding member of Everyday Health’s Wellness Advisory Board and main contributor to Everyday Health's resilience study and resource center.
