Herbert Benson, MD Course in Mind Body Medicine, 2019

Mind body approaches such as meditation, yoga, tai chi, cognitive skills, lifestyle interventions and positive psychology now boast an impressive evidence base to support their ability to improve—and in some cases, prevent—stress-related illnesses, ranging from asthma to hypertension, functional bowel diseases and pain syndromes.

At this year’s Benson-Henry Institute’s annual continuing medical education (CME) conference you practitioners can learn how mind body medicine positively affects the body and the brain. Offered in conjunction with Harvard Medical School, the conference draws hundreds of mind-body enthusiasts from around the world.

Participants will learn how to incorporate mind body medicine into day-to-day practice to improve care of patients with stress-related conditions.
