SAN JOSE, Calif., April 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As millions find themselves facing a new reality due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Grokker today announced that it’s extending free access to its on-demand video wellbeing solution. Grokker’s individual and employer wellbeing solutions, including access to over 130 experts and more than 4,000 on-demand video programs in fitness, sleep, nutrition, financial wellness and stress reduction, are available at no charge through May 31, 2020.

In addition, Grokker recently released two targeted new programs, “Nutrition for Sheltering in Place” and “3 Steps to Financial Resilience,” featuring expert guidance on navigating uncertainty, reducing stress and finding balance. The first, hosted by registered dietitian Dr. Chris Mohr, provides advice for shopping, cooking and nutritious eating, despite disrupted routines and infrequent shopping trips. In the second, certified financial planner Manisha Thakor covers foundational aspects of financial literacy and offers actionable steps for reducing debt and managing fragility.

Grokker CEO Lorna Borenstein commented, “Last month, Grokker moved quickly to provide individuals, non-profits and businesses with our on-demand wellbeing videos and programs for free. We hope that extending complimentary access to Grokker and releasing these new programs will help those struggling with everyday basics like eating well and managing finances during these unprecedented times. COVID-19 has changed life as we know it for millions, and while it’s unclear what tomorrow holds, we aim to alleviate some of the stress and anxiety that so many are feeling.”
