During this difficult past year, many people have become too familiar with illness, job loss, lives lost, painful restrictions and personal isolation. Taken together, this has not been a great year. While gratitude may not be the emotion most people are currently feeling, perhaps it should be, because being grateful is good for your health.

Learn more about how having an attitude of gratitude can improve your health at a free online event hosted by Community Memorial Health System. The virtual seminar takes place from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 9. To attend, please RSVP at  www.cmhshealth.org/RSVP. This event is hosted by Community Memorial Health System as part of its 2021 Speaker Series Online.

Join CMHS to learn how being grateful can improve your well-being.
