Are you feeling the pressure of deadlines?

Are you worried about finals?

Let’s face it…. are you a student?

If you answered yes, then you are STRESSED!

Everyone goes through stress. Some are better at it than others, but have you ever wondered why? Have you ever considered what is happening physiologically, or what stress over time may do to your health? Robert Sapolsky, a well renowned biologist and neuro-endocrinologist from Stanford University, has spent more than 30 years of his life studying this very topic, and has come up with some revolutionary information.

Come join us in an exploration of Robert Sapolsky’s documentary “STRESS: Portrait of a Killer” on Wednesday, May 25th from 11:30-1:00pm in Room T473 of the Health Sciences Building.

We will be providing a few handouts including a stress test and information on stress and stress management. The plan is to take the stress test, have a brief discussion on what stress is and our expectations of the documentary. Then, we will view the Robert Sapolsky documentary “STRESS: Portrait of a Killer”, and end the session with an open discussion about the documentary and whether it impacted our views of stress and what can be done to advocate change. We will conclude the session with a breif overview of the information and resources available for stress management.

I look forward to your participation, and please don’t be shy about spreading the word!!

Thank you,

April M. White
