The Loneliness Solution!
The United States Surgeon General has issued an alarm that the crisis of loneliness is the most significant health urgency in modern American life. Dr. Will has been researching and speaking about this growing problem for a decade and it is documented in his best selling book ‘Refrigerator Rights: Creating Connections and Restoring Relationships” written with his Purdue University colleague Dr. Glenn Sparks. His presentation focuses on the unique American habit of serial relocation and then failing to rebuild necessary close relationships. The presentation hits home as both diagnosis and prescription for returning to a connected and happy life, no matter your age and stage. The presentation is funny, as only a professional standup comedian can deliver, and based on state of the art science and experience. A penetrating hour!

Your presentation in San Antonio during our national sales meeting was fantastic. I received nothing but positive reviews about you from my group. "Awesome," "humorous," excellent" and "knowledgeable" were just a few of the comments. As the keynote speaker closing out our first day, you provided exactly what we were looking for - an energetic and humorous yet meaningful and applicable presentation. It's hard to keep 250 people engaged at the end of the day but you managed to do so. Thank you
Will, thank YOU for the fantastic presentation! It was so refreshing to see a speaker interested in our group and join in the festivities (I'm sure it assists you when you speak to the group too). Dr. Miller was captivating; his message was delivered perfectly with humor and significance to our group.
