Health & Wellness Classroom Sessions

7:45 – 8:05 AM Maternal Health

Maternal mortality is a growing discussion across the country as we prepare for another election year. It is proven that skilled care before, during and after childbirth can save the lives of women and newborn babies, yet these services come at a cost. Tonya Rapley will discuss the difference between financial insecurity and poverty, how this notable difference affects women’s health outcomes, and financial tools that are viable solutions to address this important topic.

11:05 – 11:25 AM Get Better at Stress

Meditation, massage, movement and more are all wonderful ways to recharge or refresh, but what if you could actually get better at stress?How we think about things, and especially how we think about “stress,” play a role in our body’s stress response and our overall health. The new science of stress has identified ways that we can shift our mindset for more positive outcomes. Going from threat to challenge, leaning in to prevent burnout, finding meaning in work or caregiving, and using adversity to grow are just some of the ways you can get better at stress. Join Charles Inniss, DPT, onsite wellness coach at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts, for a discussion about this important topic.

4:20 – 4:45 PM “Just Ask”…Promoting Open Conversations about Sexual Health

Sexual health can be considered a vital sign for overall health. Yet healthcare professionals and female patients often avoid important clinical conversations about sexual health, either due to a sense of discomfort or because women often do not think of their sexual health concerns as medical conditions. This lack of awareness can sometimes result in fewer women speaking up about their concerns with their healthcare providers. Attend this session to gain a better understanding of common sexual health concerns and how to get comfortable “just asking” your healthcare provider about your sexual health.
