At no time in history have we ever expected individuals to cope with ingesting and acting on so much information, across so many channels of communication. And we are at a tipping point. Individuals are burning out with huge to-do lists, fried on an overwhelming diet of immediacy that is eating away at critical thinking, at imagination, at judgement, at mental and physical health, and ultimately impacting families, communities, business, and government.
Every day, she takes one of the most complex and fascinating branches of medical science and gives it day-to-day meaning in a way that helps people adjust, adapt and succeed in rapidly transforming environments.
