It was an opportunity to take a look back on all that MFHS has accomplished over the past four decades and look ahead to new opportunities.

During her presentation, Dr. Atkinson discussed the research that shows that simple solutions like moving more and thinking positively can have a lasting and positive impact on overall health and wellness, and provided evidence of the negative health impact of behaviors such as sedentary lifestyles, poor diet, negative thinking, stress, and a self-centered culture.
