Body Language with Karlene Belyea, MBA, MVMA CEO

Making Body Language Your Super Power!
Did you know that 93% of communication does not come from the words you say to your coworkers and clients? Communication begins before you even open your mouth! In a research study at Tufts University, they discovered that when people watch 30-second soundless clips of real physician-patient interactions, their judgments of the physician’s niceness predict whether or not that physician will be sued. Body language is important! MVMA has a presentation to help you learn how to build rapport with your team and clients, gain confidence, know when someone's lying, gain power in a situation, improve your own body language and interpret other people's body language.

MVMA members may attend for free, and non-members may register for $50. Contact Dr. Don Ryker at to RSVP or for more information.
