Program Description

Event Details

In a collaboration, New Canaan Library and New Canaan YMCA, bring you a new book group about Health and Wellness. The group meets four times a year in the Wagner room at the YMCA, starting May 3rd, 2023, from 9:15am to 10:15am.  

Our first book is The Good Life: Lessons from the World’s Longest Scientific Study of Happiness by Robert J. Waldinger and Marc Schulz Ph.D. A perfect fit for Mental Health Awareness Month! According to the directors of the Harvard Study of Adult Development, the longest scientific study of happiness ever conducted, the stronger our relationships, the more likely we are to live happy, satisfying, and overall healthier lives.  

Discussion Leader: Melisa Pelikan is the YMCA’s registered Wellness Nurse Coordinator from Stamford Health. Her 30 years of experience includes treating people in both inpatient and outpatient settings, community outreach and education, clinical research, and patient advocacy.
