The Model Health Show

This year has been a time for deep reflection, societal shifts, and hard conversations. Between being quarantined at home for months and our society experiencing an awakening of racial disparities, to say it’s a strange time would be an understatement. 

While major events in the world might seem out of our control, we each hold so much power in our ability to create meaning, engage in important conversations, and spark change around us. On today’s show, Anne Stevenson is back to share her perspective on navigating relationships through difficult seasons, the power of empathy, and how we can all learn more—and in turn, do better. 

You’re going to hear about maintaining bonds when under pressure, the importance of self-care, and why having a willingness to learn is at the root of real change. Anne is sharing tips on strengthening relationships, growing through difficulties, and what it takes to be a true ally. Enjoy!
