Our current COVID landscape requires many professionals to do more work with limited resources, often while juggling personal relationships, professional responsibilities, and competing roles for our time.

Utilizing mental health resources, academic research, and current trends, join this virtual session to learn evidence-based practices that improve your personal wellbeing and professional productivity, both at home and at work. This month's KEY in Des Moines speaker focuses on just that!
