New Membership Perk: Research Round Up

Thanks to our new Director of International Development, Dr. Alan Ruth, we are going to be providing members with a summary of recent stress research every other month. We know it can be stressful to try to stay up on all of the research, and navigate through what’s truly helpful. We hope these summaries will help you stay up to date on current findings and serve as fuel for your social media and other outreach efforts. If you have other ideas for providing value to our members and want to pitch in, let us know! And please be sure to tag us on FacebookTwitter and Linked In so we can keep posted on your news as well.
