"I feel that this webinar has provided tools and resources to help my patients as well as myself pause and notice the feelings we encounter on a daily basis. I truly felt connected to Ms. Fletcher and the principles of Mindful Eating. This series has given me a new, refreshing way to teach the most challenging patients. Even in the most extremely difficult patients, I think it is worth mentioning mindful eating and how it can help us make better choices, and feel OK if we didn't."
