Brattleboro Memorial Hospital will offer a free, introductory session for its six-week course, “Letting Go of Stress” on Wednesday, October 3 at 5:15 pm in Brew Barry Conference Room 2.

Presented by Marc Cohen, MA, the introductory session will explore how stress affects an individual’s body and mind, and how one can counteract the negative impact of stress and develop “stress hardiness.”

The six-week program begins the following Wednesday, October 10 and meets weekly through November 14. The multi-session class will provide participants with the theory, practice, and motivation to establish and maintain an effective lifelong stress reduction program.
