THRIVE Connections Luncheon with Dr. Ann Garvin

By BRAVA (other events)

Thursday, November 12 2015 11:00 AM 1:00 PM CDT

NOVEMBER Keynote Address:


As a nurse, exercise physiologist, exercise psychologist, researcher, speaker and educator, Dr. Garvin has witnessed tens of thousands of individuals struggle with finding understandable, practical, health information that can reasonably be fit into an already packed life.

Dr. Garvin  has twenty-five years of teaching in the University of Wisconsin System, Southern New Hampshire University, and various venues across the country. She is an established, sought-after speaker with a 20-year history of speaking engagements at the American College of Sports Medicine, Go Red events and has published widely in the area of exercise, mental health, mood, and the effects of media on anxiety and depression. Dr. Garvin is the author of On Maggie’s Watch (2010) and The Dog Year (2014) both fiction titles published with Berkley, a division of the Penguin Group (USA).

On November 12th, Dr. Ann Garvin will address how women work hard to care for the people they love. Often this means that while caring for others they create plenty of hustle and fatigue for themselves and not enough joy. It takes a shift of thinking to push back against a culture that is constantly urging women to do more, give more, be your "best self.”  Attendees will enjoy an interactive component and explore what they wish to become, how they can make time for it, and how that will bring less hustle and more joy to every experience in their lives. You won't want to miss all that Dr. Garvin has in store for this luncheon!
