Annual OCIM Integrative Medicine Distinguished Lectureship
The Annual OCIM Integrative Medicine Distinguished Lectureship Series has been initiated featuring nationally well-known speakers and educators on integrative medicine. See below for future and past lectures.
The 10th Annual OCIM Integrative Medicine Distinguished Lectureship was a smashing success! 500 Portland area health care providers, researchers, students and community members joined us on March 2, 2013 to listen to renowned speaker, Dan Siegel, MD, talk about The Art and Science of Mindful Practice.
Summary of the talk: This presentation provided a scientific view of the importance of mindfulness in an integrative approach to health. Dr. Dan Siegel discussed the neurological basis of behavior, the mind, the brain and human relationships and put forth a method of expanding the sense of identity so as to include other people, species and the planet. He explained how the notion of “health” can be a means of linking individual, community and planetary well-being. Dr. Siegel described how mindfulness techniques stimulate the growth of self-regulating, integrative fibers of the brain to enable enhanced empathy, self-understanding, emotion regulation and even improved physiological functions - thus facilitating transformation into better states of health for both clinicians and patients.
