Proactive Medicine in the 21st Century
One of the greatest challenges facing medicine today involves non-communicable diseases. Compelling data demonstrates that many of the unhealthy behaviors that are fueling the rise of stress-related non-communicable diseases are themselves, in fact, communicable. Until we learn more about the causal links between the experience of chronic stress and the subsequent metabolic wear and tear that takes its toll on brain and body, we will have difficulty making progress.
Join us to hear Harvard Medical School faculty member Gregory Fricchione, M.D. explain how supplementing reactive disease-based medicine with proactive mind body medicine can help us meet this challenge.
Baptist Health Medical Group and Baptist Health Quality Network physicians (primary care physicians, BHQN physicians, dentist, podiatrists, psychologists and social workers).

- Implement strategies to supplement reactive disease-based medicine with pro-active mind body medicine to decrease stress-related non-communicable diseases and improve patient outcomes.
