Managing stress and anxiety during a pandemic: Mayo Clinic Radio
The Mayo Clinic Radio podcast shares the latest information on the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. The pandemic has forced changes to daily life, and disrupted normal routines at work, at school, and at home. Physical isolation can negatively affect on mental health, and constant news coverage can bring fear and anxiety about the disease. How can we best cope in these uncertain times? Dr. Craig Sawchuk, chair of the Division of Integrated Behavioral Health at Mayo Clinic, shares helpful tips and strategies on managing stress and anxiety during the pandemic. Then in an encore presentation of Mayo Clinic Radio, Dr. Bruce Pollock, a Mayo Clinic neurologic surgeon, will explain gamma knife stereotactic radiosurgery — surgery without a scalpel. And Dr. Maisha Robinson will discuss palliative care.
