Casting for Recovery, Expedition Inspiration, and River Discovery, three organizations working in the Idaho outdoors with cancer survivors, have partnered to present lecture events in Boise and Ketchum.
This partnership is thrilled to bring Dr. Firdaus Dhabhar, Professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at the University of Miami Health System, in Miami, Florida, to present, Optimizing Good Stress and Minimizing Bad Stress to Promote Health and Well-Being.
Dr. Dhabhar will discuss research on the previously unappreciated protective effects of short-term, fight-or-flight stress, and their practical applications, key characteristics of chronic stress and its harmful effects, the concept of the Stress Spectrum that explains the balance between the protective versus harmful effects of stress, and ways to optimize your Stress Spectrum in order to harness the beneficial/protective effects of short-term stress and to minimize/eliminate the harmful effects of chronic stress. This lecture is meant to be conversational and provide opportunity for questions.

Casting for Recovery is a non-profit organization providing educational, recreational, and emotional support programs to breast cancer survivors for over 20 years.
