Podcast: Coping With Stress

Oct. 5, 2020

It’s fair to say we’re all feeling more stress in our lives right now as the COVID-19 pandemic lingers with no clear endpoint in sight. How can we better manage that stress in these uncertain times? “I think a lot of people are really hard on themselves about the way they are feeling when it comes to stress,” said Dr. Greg Vanichkachorn of the Mayo Clinic. “So recognizing that you are stressed and realizing that this can happen is the first step.”

In this episode of NBAA’s Flight Plan, host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Dr. Daniel Gilday, medical program director for AirCare International and an ER physician
  • Matthew McNeil, president and clinical director for LiftEffect and a commercial airline captain
  • Dr. Greg Vanichkachorn, senior associate consultant and senior aviation medical examiner at the Mayo Clinic

NBAA Flight Plan is sponsored by Whiting Aviation Park, ready to grow your business in Santa Rosa County, FL.
