Dr. Charles Raison: Maintaining Your Well-Being During COVID

It’s All About Relationships, and Not Just With Other People. What COVID Is Trying To Tell Us About Well-Being Why are people more frightened by COVID than by global warming? Despite being frightened, why are many of us now choosing to be with other people, even at a risk to our own health? Can we draw lessons from these contradictions that will allow us to deepen our relationships with each other while staying healthy, as individuals and societies?  And how can we best use the COVID pandemic to recognize changes we will need to make if we want to continue living in a modern, interconnected world? In this podcast as Professor Christine Whelan interviews “Health Is Everything” host Charles L. Raison, MD, who explores these and related topics through the lens of evolutionary psychology and behavioral immunology. A psychiatrist and researcher, Dr. Raison is the Mary Sue and Mike Shannon Distinguished Chair for Healthy Minds, Children & Families in the School Human Ecology, University of Wisconsin-Madison and is a Visiting Professor in the Center for The Study of Human Health at Emory University in Atlanta, GA.Featuring:Dr. Charles Raison, Psychiatrist, Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Emory UniversityGuest Host:Dr. Christine Whelan, Mother of Eleanor Barrett (Host of Health is Everything No Kidding), Clinical Professor in the School of Human Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and director of MORE: Money, Relationships and EqualityAbout Emory University's Center for the Study of Human Health:The Emory Center for the Study of Human Health was developed to expand health knowledge and translate this knowledge to all aspects of life – for the individual and populations as a whole.
