while many things are still in play for 2013, i want to share what my co-host carol harnett and i have booked so far so you can save the dates on your calendar. all of the events listed here are for cohealth checkup, our 30-minute live talk radio show, and take place at noon ET unless otherwise noted.
we piloted cohealth checkup in 2012 with guests from the harvard medical school, stanford persuasive technology lab, pew internet & american life project, american heart association and many others. with nearly 20,000 listens to date, we’re committed to bringing you a full year of quality programming in 2013. (listen to 2012 shows.)

wednesday, january 2: adult caregiving
guest: kevin synpniewski, CEO, agis networks
right now, one in five adult workers is also an adult caregiver. as our population ages, this number will only grow, and so will the need for support. helping employees understand that they are caregivers is the first important step. helping them take care of themselves as they care for others is second. flexibility is also key, as caregivers routinely report needing to come in late, leave early or request some shift in typical work schedules. using the moment to help people sort through their own future long-term care needs is important as well. join us for this show on adult caregiving, including long-term care decisions.
wednesday, february 6: resolving the job vs life conflict
guest: cali yost, consultant, fast company contributor, author
does a day pass when you don’t need to juggle work and life demands? let’s forget balance. balance doesn’t exist. instead, let’s look at how small adjustments can keep everything on track and ourselves sane. join us as we talk with the author of “tweak it: make what matters to you happen every day” about how to create a functional work+life fit, and why and how employers should help.
wednesday, may 1: live from human resource executive health & benefits
this pre-recorded show will tap into what co-hosts carol and fran pick up while attending and presenting at HRE’s first benefits conference, held in las vegas, NV from april 22-24, 2013. we’re sure to rope in some of the scheduled speakers for commentary, too.
