Stress not only affects our mental wellbeing, but our physical health as well.  Our guest, Dr. Vivien Brown a family physician and Vice President for MEDISYS Health Group, Inc., in charge of Medical Affairs (http://www.medisys.ca/) explores the impact of stress on the body and how you can actually prevent disease and illness – because “nothing makes you feel more fragile than getting sick.”

Dr. Brown shares with us the importance of preventative medicine and what you can do at a time when your body is most vulnerable.   An award winner for teaching on many levels, Dr. Brown’s major interests are in the area of health promotion and prevention for women, and continuing medical education. She is particularly focused in the area of Adult Immunization and Vaccine Preventable Illness.

  • Health promotion and health prevention
  • The importance of a fitness program
