On June 16 and 17, the University’s Marcus Institute of Integrative Health will host its fourth annual Advances in Mind-Body Medicine conference to examine the emerging topic of how mind, body and spirit play important roles in one’s health.
At the helm of the event – led by the first-ever department of Integrative Medicine and Nutritional Sciences at a medical school in the United States – is Dr. Daniel A. Monti, the Institute’s founding director and chief executive officer.
In this episode of the Nexus Podcast, we speak with Dr. Monti about topics that experts will cover at the conference, including brain health, stress and immune health, mindfulness-based interventions and advanced mind-body strategies for specialized populations.
We also speak with a keynote speaker and panelist Pat Croce, best known for his earlier life roles as a popular (and energetic) physical therapist and president of the Philadelphia 76ers who found himself on a path toward becoming more mindful and introspective even before a 2020 diagnosis of T Cell Lymphoma.
