“After a difficult year for wellness, ‘Dare to Self-Care’ is the perfect event for the best and latest advice for restoring your mental, emotional and physical health,” said Eve Rodsky, author of Fair Play. “No matter your background, these seasoned and acclaimed speakers have incredible insights and strategies for living a healthier life and we’re thrilled to partner with Glamour and CVS on this important event.”

“Due to COVID-19, many women have recalibrated their daily routines to care for children and family members, often while also managing work responsibilities and at-home duties. This has led to profound stress, burnout and anxiety,” said Cara McNulty, DPA, President, Aetna Behavioral Health. “Given that May is Mental Health Awareness Month and Women’s Health Month, it is important that we stand up for women’s health and mental wellbeing, raise awareness and dedicate resources to support them in prioritizing their own total well-being.”
