From The Center for Mind-Body Medicine

Once a year, The Center for Mind-Body Medicine puts on the best introductory training program in medical nutrition therapy on the planet – a feast of science and wisdom. Always lively, always cutting-edge, our core faculty and guest speakers who are all leaders in their respective fields share the very latest in nutritional science and seasoned clinical pearls with our attendees. Our aim is to give our attendees both the knowledge and confidence they need to begin practicing on Monday morning.

How well do we succeed? Judging by the number of alums who return, very well indeed. And the number of people who say, “This was the best medical conference I ever attended” is astounding.

What makes this program different? The quality of everything, from the learning environment, which includes breathing and other mind-body techniques to reduce our stress and help us relax and focus, to the speakers, including Mark Hyman, MD, Kathie Swift, MS RD, David Ludwig, MD, Neal Barnard, MD – certainly on everyone’s top ten lists – and the food! Designed by our Executive Chef Rebecca Katz, MS, the luncheons are organic, colorful, healthy and outrageously delicious. Yes – you can have it all!
