Norwich Presents "Resilient Bodies Workshop"

The Norwich University Center for Global Resilience and Security invites you to join Drs.

Topics to be covered include:

•  How physical and mental health can be optimized through exercise, nutrition, and brain training

•  Challenges with our current military and first responder training systems

•  Solutions at the national level

•  Opportunities for enhancement at the local level

•  Unique solutions being developed between academic and military teams at Norwich University
