Do companies and corporations finally get the importance of wellness programs for their employees? Connie Mester is betting her startup on the idea that they are. She has taken 16 years of experience in healthcare and health insurance to found a company focused on helping individuals learn how to achieve emotional wellness. That may sound esoteric but their work is based on evidence based medicine that fills a gap in emotional health support. Thrive 4-7’s first product is Mevii – a mobile tool to teach and support personal skills to manage wellness. Listen to our conversation or drop in to the time stamps below.
