Presentations by Dr. Will:
The United States Surgeon General has issued an alarm that the crisis of loneliness is the most significant health urgency in modern American life. Dr. Will has been researching and speaking about this growing problem for a decade and it is documented in his best selling book ‘Refrigerator Rights: Creating Connections and Restoring Relationships” written with his Purdue University colleague Dr. Glenn Sparks. His presentation focuses on the unique American habit of serial relocation and then failing to rebuild necessary close relationships. The presentation hits home as both diagnosis and prescription for returning to a connected and happy life, no matter your age and stage. The presentation is funny, as only a professional standup comedian can deliver, and based on state of the art science and experience. A penetrating hour!
