Employee Lifestyle Education

Rest and Renewal Lifestyle Series

Lifestyle is a foundation of health — the blockbuster drug that doesn’t cost a penny.

The Rest and Renewal Lifestyle series brings a physician-created, group visit model for caring for the whole person to the worksite. The material has been adapted to fit your worksite, while still bringing participants the value of the group visit model. Participants build individual capacity - learning about themselves - while being given the opportunity to share experiences among a community of people. The group visit and community approach can result in more education, time for dialogue, build skills and develop mind-body practices.

Dr. Kara Parker

This Integrative Health series was developed by board-certified family medicine physician Dr. Kara Parker, who is trained in Integrative and Functional Medicine at Hennepin Healthcare. Integrative Health is defined as healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. Dr. Parker has found the holistic and functional medicine approach to patient care helpful in treating most patient conditions, especially those not easily treated by drugs and/or surgery. She created a program of integrative health group visits, which has now been adopted to fit the workplace environment.
