In the past few weeks, Freelancers Medical brought together the freelance community to connect, breathe, and find a moment of solidarity in the sun.
Yoga events in McCarren Park and Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY, attracted over 200 people, who joined us to experience some outdoor yoga Zen, network with fellow freelancers, and learn more about what the Freelancers Medical program has to offer independent workers.
As if we weren't excited enough already about the upcoming launch of Freelancers Medical, we're even more energized after talking to people face-to-face about New Mutualism and Freelancers Medical – and hearing their enthusiasm for the program and what this means for the freelance community here in NYC.

Finding Balance at 3rd Ward
It wasn't just the Downward Dogs that brought freelancers together. At 3rd Ward on Monday, Sara sat down with Dr. Neil Patel to talk about the balancing act between health and business. Sara gave tips on business-building and networking, drawing on the advice gathered in her forthcoming book, The Freelancer's Bible. Dr. Patel, a key member of the Freelancers Medical program care team, brought perspective on how to stay healthy and centered as a freelancer.
