Dr. Mary Wingo has been a permanent resident in Ecuador for 2 years. She is trained as a Ph.D. scientist and is a business person originally from the United States.
She has a PhD from the University of North Texas in physiology, specifically human stress research.
This field of study deeply challenged her to fully understand human adaptation and its mechanisms, which required diving in deep at all levels of biology, ecology, psychology, sociology, as well as economics and politics.
She has been deeply interested in the topic of human stress for many years, as the cost to our communities every year is in the trillions of dollars.
Millions of people die prematurely, or suffer disability needlessly because of preventable exposure to stress.
Dr. Mary Wingo can help you easily understand the most important social issue of our time: the uncontrolled stress of modern life and its devastating effects on our bodies and our communities.
