The University of Cincinnati Center for Integrative Health and Wellness will host its 2019 community symposium “Optimize Your Well-Being” on Saturday, Jan. 12, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., in UC’s Tangeman University Center.
The symposium will focus on whole-person wellness and will showcase innovative ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle, preempt illness and promote healing through lifestyle management and evidence-based complementary therapies.
The 2016 symposium, the center’s first, drew over 300 attendees.
The day’s events include movement-based and mindfulness experientials, food and art as medicine interactive sessions, and scientific lectures from integrative medicine faculty focused on wellness, prevention of chronic disease and the role of lifestyle medicine for your optimal health. Experiential tracks include integrative oncology, stress management, pain management and gut health.
The 2019 keynote speaker is Victoria Maizes, MD, executive director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine and a professor of medicine, family medicine and public health at the University of Arizona. Maizes is internationally recognized as a leader in integrative medicine and is committed to helping individuals live healthier lives and pioneering change efforts that solve U.S. health care system problems. She is the editor of the Oxford University textbook “Integrative Women’s Health” and the author of “Be Fruitful: The Essential Guide to Maximizing Fertility and Giving Birth to a Healthy Child.”
Maizes was named one of the world’s 25 intelligent optimists in 2009 by ODE magazine.
