We all know how important it is to stay healthy and look after ourselves as we age. But what exactly can we do to ensure we remain at our healthiest throughout our lives?

Join our panel of experts who will share strategies and tips on prevention and management of chronic disease. They will also describe a simple framework to help each of us level up our health. This informative and educational webinar is designed to be a “one stop shop” to answer questions about chronic disease prevention, to help you design a healthy lifestyle plan for yourself and your family, and learn more about the new “Five to Thrive” program.

Dr. Farah Nanji is a registered psychologist who has worked within the mental health for over 20 years, and has seen that there is no separation between mental and physical health.

She works with individuals using a holistic lens on health so that they can prevent or reduce the symptoms of chronic mental and physical disease by creating chronic wellness.
