Understanding the impact obesity has on our physical and mental health is critical to communicate to our patients, their family members and caregivers to reduce the risk of chronic illness which creating more demands on our patients and the healthcare system.

1981 The Workplace Bully - Not Just on the Playground

Billie Gilliam PC, LICDC- Lakeshore Educational
Sponsored by Brighten Gardens and SJMC

The workplace bully can often be found within the culture of the company and sometimes even protected by employers and employees. It has been a misnomer as simply a personality clash among employees. Often the behavior is accepted and statements such as, "That's how this place is, everyone experiences it," or "You have to be thick-skinned to work here." However the workplace bully has a negative effect on the organization and the individual. Research suggests that 47 million U.S. workers are impacted by psychological aggression. The purpose of the workshop is to assist the participant in understanding the differences between childhood bullying, harassment and workplace bullying. Additionally, the participant will be able to understand and minimize the negative emotional and organizational impact of its occurrence.
