In a fresh location with healthy gourmet foods, our third Health & Wellness Conference cultivated learning, friendship and personal growth. Held on Saturday, May 9, 2015 at the Institute for Integrative Health’s carefully renovated historic Broomcorn building, the day began with an inspirational chanting session with Tibetan Monks from the Drepung Gomang Monastery and words of wisdom from the Center for Integrative Medicine’s Director Brian Berman, MD.
More than 230 participants were given a variety of educational experiences that encouraged them to “explore, experience and engage” in better health and wellness. Choosing from experiential, advanced or introductory workshops, attendees created their own daylong educational curriculum. A total of 20 different workshops offered a variety of topics to quench thirsty minds and facilitate new journeys to wellness.
We offered two timely keynotes for participants to choose from – both of which received rave reviews:
|Your Synthetic World: Explore How the Products We Use Everyday Affect our Endocrine System by Heather White, JD – Executive Director of the Environmental Working Group (pictured left).
Optimizing Gut Health: A Key to Improved Digestion and Beyond by Chris D’Adamo, PhD – Nutrition expert and CIM’s Director of Research (pictured right).
