UOR 2014 Dental health professionals are not immune to chronic disease. This workshop will identify the serious chronic disease epidemic facing our family, friends, patients, community, and most of all, ourselves. Self-care is never selfish; self-care can mean the difference between aging gracefully and naturally and living what I call a ‘medically managed’ life. Many problems can be avoided; this is the goal of this workshop. You will learn about the five key ingredients to good health and plan your short and long term goals to be healthier, vital and naturally more productive, enhancing your own life as well as the lives of all those around you! You will leave this workshop with the knowledge that change for the better is not only possible but necessary and urgently needed by so many in our lives. To really help others we must begin with ourselves, starting by walking the walk then talking the talk.
