In this session, we will discuss statistics on the current health of our nation and trends in recent years, especially during the pandemic.  We will also acknowledge healthcare provider burnout as a real and significant problem.  We will then talk about studies related to nature and physical health, mental health and sense of well being and how we can use nature for ourselves, our families and in our practice to improve the health of individuals (and their pets!). We will  touch on the importance of reconnecting with nature for the health of our planet.
