About the Event
This workshop series is about the relationship between biological processes, emotional well-being and health. In some cases biological systems are best known for their association with dysfunction or disease (e.g. inflammation, cortisol); this workshop series aims to examine how biological systems and patterns of activation might be uniquely involved in emotional well-being and promote health.
Esteemed guest speakers for this webinar include Steve Cole, Professor of Medicine and Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences in the UCLA School of Medicine; Sarah Pressman, Professor of Psychological Science at the University of California UC Irvine, Martin Picard, Associate Professor of Behavioral Medicine at Columbia University, and Ted Robles, Professor of Psychology at UCLA. Q&A and interactive segments will be led by members of our Network for Emotional Well-Being collaborative team.
This workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, April 21, 2023, from 9:00 am - 12:45 pm pacific time. Participation in the N-EWB: Biological Processes, Emotional Well-Being, and Health webinars are free, though registration is required to access the calendar invites and webinar links.
