In this episode I am joined by Pete Bombaci, Founder of The GenWell Project, a Canadian organization dedicated to making the world a healthier and happier place by reminding people about the importance of face-to-face social connection as a proactive health action that they can take, and inspiring them to take action.

Following a successful career in the beverage alcohol industry, Pete ventured into the world of charities and not-for-profits

We had an amazing conversation about what his organization is doing to help combat loneliness, something that affects everyone across the spectrum all over the world. According to a survey by Cigna Health Insurance, more than three in five Americans are lonely, with more and more people reporting feeling like they are left out, poorly understood and lacking companionship.

In this interview we discuss why we live in a time where although we have so many ways to stay connected at our fingertips, people still report to feel more alone than ever before.
