The series continues Nov. 25 with “A spotlight on relationships and health” presented by Debra Pepler, Distinguished Research Professor of psychology, Faculty of Health.

We seldom think about relationships as essential to health, but that’s what research is starting to show us. Beginning in infancy, healthy relationships shape healthy physical, mental, and social health – down to the integrity of DNA in cells. This session will illustrate unhealthy relationships and briefly highlight research on relationships and health from infancy through old age. There will also be discussion on what makes a healthy relationship – which is so important in these times of COVID.
