EP9 | The Holiday Season

The holiday season isn’t always a joyous time for some people. Personal struggles, family issues, financial challenges, and the stress of trying to be merry can be overwhelming. This month’s Spectrum Health Journey features some conversations that can help reset your expectations and reactions. Kelly Wofford, Director of Health Equity for the Erie County Department Health and founder of Front Seat Life LLC shares a clinician’s perspective, and Amy Jo Lauber from Lauber Financial Planning shares wisdom on stress free holiday spending. Finally executive producer Cherie Messore shares holiday alternatives for giving back.
