Lisa Stubbs, PhD, Explores the Genetic Mechanisms at Work in Our Response to Stress
Tune in to KOMO Radio this Sunday, Nov. 14, at 11:00am (PST) for Part II of Dr. Lisa Stubbs’ discussion of the connection between genetics and chronic stress. She’ll share what we’re learning about how our genes give us greater susceptibility or resistance to developing stress-related conditions such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease as well as anxiety, depression, and other mental health disorders.
Tune in below for Part I of Dr. Stubbs’ discussion of the connection between genetics and chronic stress on KOMO Radio’s IRG Health Talk. Find out how each of us perceive and manage stress differently, based on genetics and life experiences, and how genetic variants influence how stress translates into conditions like anxiety, depression, diabetes and heart disease. Plus, hear how the brain’s natural “SOS“ signal helps us adapt and cope, but also how it can damage our whole-body health.
