Dr. Peter Wayne, Interim Osher Center Director and Research Director, delivered the 2019 annual lecture for the Dr. Khushman V. Sanghvi Memorial Lectureship on the Mind-Body Interface in Health and Healing. Dr. Wayne’s lecture “Bringing the Body Back Into Mind-Body Medicine Research” was addressed to a near full capacity auditorium of over 300 attendees.
The lecture series is an annual endowed lectureship exposing health care professionals and interested community members to the importance and benefit of complementary medicine. It was created through a generous gift from University of Cincinnati cardiologist Vijay Sanghvi, MD, and his daughters.

In addition to the annual lecture, Dr. Wayne led a 1.5 hour class entitled ” The Practice and Science of Tai Chi & Qigong: An Experiential Session” to approximately 100 members of the UC College of Medicine community, and presented a further morning lecture entitled “Minding & Mending Our Bodies: Tai Chi for Improving Balance, Cognition and Pain.”
