The focus of the series — part of a paid partnership between BlueJeans and CircleAround — is on women business owners and how they are navigating the complexities and challenges of contemporary business, from the pandemic to the economy.

Have a hard time keeping up with the latest health headlines and distinguishing fact from fiction, especially clickbait articles and stories on mental health and nutrition news? Yeah, us, too. 

In the ever-evolving world of health and wellness, there’s no shortage of new information or, at times, misinformation. To set the record straight and open doors for valuable understanding and knowledge, CircleAround sat down with industry experts in the health and wellness space to debunk common nutrition myths and mental health misconceptions for optimal mind-body health.

In partnership with BlueJeans, CircleAround hosted the discussion with the following panelists:

  • Host and moderator Sharon Wood is the Acting General Manager of One GS Media, with more than 40 years of experience in communications and business management. She’s worked with multiple Fortune 100 companies and led digital health initiatives. 

  • Lindsay Orchowski, Ph.D., is a staff psychologist in the Adult Outpatient Division in the Department of Psychiatry within Lifespan Physicians Group and associate professor (Research) at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

  • Lynn Brann, PhD, RDN, FAND, is an associate professor in the Department of Nutrition and Food Studies at Syracuse University and will assume the role of Department Chair in January 2022.

In the conversation, our panelists unveil the role of emotional intelligence in a healthy state of being and relationships and examine the real science behind common nutrition headlines and myths. Watch the truth come to light in the full video above.
