Beth Netter, MD Presents Breath as Medicine at American Meditation Institutes Seventh Annual CME Conference to Help Relieve Physician Burnout


Averill Park, NY (PRWEB) May 26, 2015

Holistic physician and acupuncturist Beth Netter, MD will present a lecture on “Breath as Medicine” to help relieve burnout symptoms for physicians and other health care professionals at the 7th annual American Meditation Institute (AMI) CME conference on meditation, yoga and breathing November 3-7, 2015, at the Cranwell Resort and Spa in Lenox, Massachusetts. Entitled “The Heart and Science of Yoga,” this 30 CME mind/body medicine physician training is accredited through the Albany Medical College Office of Continuing Medical Education.

Now in its seventh year of providing physicians continuing medical education credits, AMI’s comprehensive curriculum will present an in-depth study of the historical, philosophical and scientific nature of Yoga Science as taught in both the East and West. A variety of practical yogic skills will be taught to help reduce the effects of stress and burnout by positively enhancing the attendee’s ability to make health-affirming lifestyle choices. In turn, conference participants will become qualified to teach these same skills to their patients.

Yogic breathing is a fundamental practice of Yoga Science. Dr. Netter’s “Breath as Medicine” presentation will address the importance of diaphragmatic breathing as a means to optimize blood flow, provide sufficient oxygen to the body and improve heart-rate variability. The complete (three-part) yogic breath will be demonstrated and practiced by all conference attendees. Recent medical studies have acknowledged that by stimulating the vagus nerve, yogic breathing techniques can increase neurotransmitters in the brain that reduce anxiety and depression.

Presenter Beth Netter MD is a holistic physician and acupuncturist in Albany, New York. She graduated from the University at Buffalo’s School of Biomedical Sciences, and completed her residency in anesthesiology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA. Dr. Netter is an AMI certified meditational therapist, and currently serves as Chair of the AMI Medical Education Department.

As part of AMI’s “Yoga of Medicine” program, this 30 CME conference is dedicated to providing quality, comprehensive and evidence-based education. AMI’s CME conference will offer a broad curriculum of Yoga Science as mind/body medicine to enhance the health and wellbeing of both healthcare providers and their patients. Topics will include meditation, diaphragmatic breathing, mantra science, Yoga psychology, mind function optimization, nutrition, Functional Medicine, Epigenomics, Ayurveda, easy-gentle yoga, lymph system detoxification, how to relieve stress and burnout, and the chakra system as a diagnostic tool.

The devotion, enthusiasm, and teaching methodology of the entire AMI faculty will combine to create a dynamic and interactive course for their students. Each faculty member is committed to the advancement and training of Yoga Science as holistic mind/body medicine. In addition to Beth Netter MD, presenters will include faculty director Leonard Perlmutter, AMI founder, meditational therapist and award-winning author; Mark Pettus MD, board-certified internist and nephrologist; Susan Lord MD, lecturer and holistic health consultant for Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health; Kathie Swift, MS RDN LDN, leading educator and practitioner in the field of integrative nutrition and author of “The Inside Tract: Your Good Gut Guide to Great Digestive Health;” Rosy Mann BAMS, senior faculty member of Kripalu School of Ayurveda; Prashant Kaushik MD, board-certified rheumatologist and Interim Rheumatology Program Director for the Albany Medical Center and Stratton VA Hospital; Anthony Santilli MD, board-certified pulmonologist and critical care specialist practicing in Schenectady, NY; and world-renowned artist Jenness Cortez Perlmutter, co-founder and faculty member of AMI.

The National Institutes of Health report that approximately 38% of adults in the United States aged 18 and over, and nearly 12% of U.S. children 17 years and under use some form of complementary and alternative medicine. Significant among these therapies are deep breathing exercises, meditation and yoga––all of which are offered in “The Heart and Science of Yoga” CME course. “This is the first CME approved conference in the nation covering the complete science of Yoga. Its holistic content is designed to provide healthcare professionals and their patients a 5,000 year old, time-tested, science-based mechanism for dealing with the debilitating effects of stress, illness and burnout,” Perlmutter said. “The more consistently the therapeutic practices of meditation and yoga are incorporated into the daily lives of physicians and patients, most symptoms of stress related burnout and chronic complex diseases can be diminished or eliminated.”

This sentiment is echoed by recent conference graduate, Joel M. Kremer, MD, who is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Rheumatology in Albany, New York: “This teaching has been an enormous benefit in my personal and professional life. I have less stress, more focus, and am able to serve my patients with greater clarity. It becomes surprisingly easy now to recognize the many clinical situations in which patients with somatic manifestations of ‘dis-ease’ could greatly benefit from Yoga Science.”

In addition to Dr. Kremer, numerous medical pioneers and healthcare professionals such as Mehmet Oz MD, Dean Ornish MD and Bernie Siegel MD have also endorsed AMI’s core curriculum. Previous conference attendees have also noted that the material presented has made a beneficial impact toward their personal and professional efforts at self-care.

Terence Traut Among Top Speakers at ISPI 2015 Conference & Expo


Merrimack, NH (PRWEB) May 07, 2015

Terence Traut, Entelechy’s President, spoke on Coaching for Talent Development and Employee Engagement at this year’s ISPI 2015 Conference held in San Antonio, TX. Terry presented this 75-minute workshop to a packed room in an engaging, fun, and enlightening session. Participants commented that “this was the best workshop I’ve ever attended at a conference – ANY conference.”

“What makes the workshop so impactful,” explains Terry, “is the coaching model – it’s simple and effective – and the activities we do to ensure everyone ‘gets it.’” In the session, Terry introduces participants to Entelechy’s Coaching Model, the same model that Entelechy uses as the foundation for its award-winning Unleash Your Leadership Potential leadership/management development program and has been described as “simply elegant” by participants who speak to the model’s power and simplicity. Terry also invites participants to practice the model in an engaging coaching exercise to experience the power of coaching.

Coaching to develop talent and engage employees is, according to industry researcher, Josh Bersin, a key leadership skill for 2015. Yet, according to Traut, “most coaching models and training don’t provide a practical, prescriptive tool for coaching. Most training talks about how important it is to listen to the employee, to use questions, to display empathy, to focus on goals…. Interesting stuff, but not really useful, which is why most employee surveys indicate that their managers don’t coach them.”

The VP of Global Learning & Quality at a 70,000 employee organization agrees on the impact of coaching: “The initial return on our commitment to developing our leaders’ coaching skills is remarkable. In our pilot site, our performance six weeks following the initial implementation saw them move from the bottom quartile among our competitors to the #1 site, and they have maintained top quartile performance ever since.”

Pediatric Research Conference on Food, Environment, and Childrens Health Set to Convene in Austin, TX


Austin, Texas (PRWEB) February 03, 2015

The Children’s Environmental Health Network (CEHN) is hosting a research conference titled: “Children: Food and Environment” in Austin, Texas from February 4th-6th, 2015. This conference will begin with a welcome address from the newly elected Austin Mayor, Mr. Steve Adler. CEHN is honored to have Mayor Adler, an advocate for the environment and for children, welcome conference participants to this exciting conference. Following the Mayor’s welcome will be an opening keynote address by Dr. Bruce Lanphear of Simon Fraser University and BC Children’s Hospital titled “Food in the Industrial Era: Is Backward the Way Forward?”

CEHN will also screen the documentary “Food Chains” as part of the conference opening, a film focusing on a group of tomato pickers from Southern Florida who are working to revolutionize farm labor. While focusing on farm worker injustices, the film provides an excellent bridge to the conference program by reflecting on how our entire food production system, from farm to table, touches the health of children, whether children of farm workers or consumers. Cutting edge research on topics ranging from how the interactions of food and the environment impact children’s health and development, including childhood obesity, neurodevelopment, and respiratory development will be presented over the following two days. There will be eight concurrent sessions with a total of 28 speakers, as well as two poster presentation sessions. CEHN’s Executive Director, Nsedu Obot Witherspoon, stated: “CEHN is thrilled to bring our latest pediatric research conference to Austin, TX and we look forward to over two days of science discussions around how the intersections of food and environmental factors affect the development of our children. The public health and policy implications to the related science will also be discussed in this unique forum.” To see the full conference schedule, visit: http://www.cehn.org/files/whole_schedule%202-2.pdf.

Keynote speakers include Dr. Erin Hager from the University of Maryland on how home and school environments predict children’s dietary choices; Dr. Lita Proctor, the director of the NIH Human Microbiome Project, who will speak on what the human microbiome is and its importance; Dr. Susan Smith from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who will address the challenges of food, toxicants, and perinatal influences; and Dr. Gregory Diette from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health on the prevention and treatment of asthma with diet. Expert panelists will discuss the policy and regulatory implications of this research. David Wallinga from Healthy Food Action will moderate a panel including Dr. William Dietz and Dr. Lance Price from George Washington University on how to navigate science and policy in a complex food environment, and Nsedu Obot Witherspoon from CEHN will moderate a panel on how to overcome barriers to promoting healthy development, which is comprised of Dr. Ruth Etzel, Director of the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Children’s Health Protection, Dr. William Suk from the National Institute of Environmental of Health Sciences, and Erik Olson from the Natural Resources Defense Council.

To showcase two programs doing excellent work with youth, food, and environmental sustainability in Austin, conference attendees will be visiting two Austin-based sustainable food programs as part of the conference, Urban Roots and the Sustainable Food Center.
