Programs examine important topics and issues impacting all of us through the lens of health and wellness. We highlight the questions, challenges and struggles people typically face in everyday life. In each of our programs we clarify the issues and provide useful information, pragmatic tips, and resources.

Rev. Jerry Troyer and comedian Jeffrey Lawrence join us for a lively discussion about pride, acceptance and coming out to the self.  For more information on discovering and accepting our true selves, check out and read Jerry Troyer's book Coming Out to Ourselves.  This book is for anyone motivated and ready to break the bonds keeping us from living our most optimal lives.
