MIND BODY MEDICINE AT HARVARD UNIVERSITY
THIS COURSE IS ONE OF HARVARD’S HIGHEST RATED CME COURSES
CME CONTINUING MEDICAL EDUCATION
Obviously the doctors and other Health/Disease Care providers found this course to be interesting and useful that they gave it the highest rating!
Could this have been dealing with the latest developments in the field of the Science of Medicine?
About wonder drugs introduced this past year?
Drug Company sponsored, luscious entertainment masquerading as Medical Education?
No, NO, NOOO!
The conference in question is about MIND BODY MEDICINE. And all the speakers and presenters are not well known names in Biomedicine, and the guest faculty sounds like faculty from some college in California. But this is real; the presenters have all spent their professional lives at various integrative and complimentary medicine fields. They have obviously something to say, otherwise, doctors are not willing to pay $1000 for a four-day conference in Boston in September?
I am gratified beyond words about this increasing interest in Mindfulness and other integrative mind/medical themes in the general medical public’s eyes and hearts.

It also reflects the growing realization on the part of many practitioners of Medicine that Machines and Medications are not going to take care of their patients and that there are extra biological aspects to medical care for which the majority of the heath/disease care providers are not prepared. There is a growing realization that Body is not a Machine and that you cannot just objectify the symptoms the patient presents to you and turn them into mechanical failures within the body machine.
This year’s conference takes place in Boston on September 17-20 and the keynote speaker would be Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD. For those of you who don't know about Dr Kabat-Zinn, he is the person responsible to introduce the ancient Yogic concept of Mindfulness to the western audiences.
It would be good to attend this conference.
