Should You Let Your Health Insurance Access Your Smartwatch
This week on the show we're asking a question about health insurance: with so many companies rolling out wellness programs, offering free Fitbits or Apple Watches, should you enroll? What kind of data do they collect?
We talk to two experts to get some advice and help you answer the question for yourself.

This week we wanted to take a step back and look at the outbreak of COVID-19 in the US. With a lot of information and misunderstandings wizzing around, we wanted to help answer some of the basic questions.
Note: Parts of this episode were recorded on March 14th, 2020. While a lot has changed, particularly in New York, we wanted to let you know that Katy, who we interviewed in this episode is now self isolating and only training clients online.

Taking Care of Mental Health During Cancer Treatment
This week we wanted to share some resources with you for a tough topic. Studies suggest that we don't talk about mental health as much as we should, especially during something as taxing as cancer treatment. So we got some tips from the CDC to help you talk about your needs.
You can learn more on the CDC's website:
