This webinar will focus on the impact of the significant stressors experienced by first responders and how these stressors directly impact metabolic functioning. A central focus on this training will be on HPA-Axis Dysfunction and how chronic stress breaks down the very system in the body needed for a healthy stress response.
Symptoms of metabolic dysfunction and HPA Axis Dysfunction will be discussed, as well as behavioral changes and medical treatments that can help to offset the significant damage chronic stressors may create for first responders.
