Upcoming webinars

Healthy Bodies: Thinking Beyond Our Weight

Thursday, October 7, 2 – 3 p.m. ET
AND

Thursday, October 14, 2 – 3 p.m. ET
Suggested audience: All plan members, spouses, and surviving spouses

Having a healthy body requires each of us to consider more than a number on the scale. During this two-part webinar series, we will explore the stories we tell ourselves about our bodies. The first session will zoom out on the topic, considering spiritual, cultural, and physiological influences on our perceptions about weight. The second session will zoom in on the more specific details of our story, exploring what's happening in our bodies as well as ways we can move toward increased bodily health. This series will create space for you to make peace with your body and determine what your story will be moving forward.
