About This Webinar

This webinar will address the long-term effects of stress on your health and wellness.

We all know stress impacts us mentally and emotionally, but did you know it can also affect your physical health? Headaches, heart disease, high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, digestive problems…these issues are often blamed on lifestyle choices, but all could be symptoms of stress.

Join four former fire chiefs who were fortunate to survive the job – but felt a real reduction in these symptoms after they retired. Share your own experiences with stress-based illness and learn how to spot, address, and defeat this “silent killer” before it harms your health.
