LIVESTREAM Wired to Connect: The Surprising Link Between Brain Science and Strong, Healthy Relationships
Time & Location
About the Event
Loneliness is epidemic in America. A shocking statement given our country’s abundant resources. Studies show at least 1 in 4 people do not have anyone they can depend on in an emergency. While disturbing, this situation is also making us physically sicker as a country. Dr. Amy Banks will discuss her book, Wired to Connect: The Surprising Link Between Brain Science and Strong, Healthy Relationships, looking at how a culture of rugged individualism and “standing on your own two feet" undermines the neural pathways needed to build close relationships. Sponsored by a grant from The Cummings Foundation.
