Lifestyle Medicine 2020
Saturday, February 15
Russell Library in Middletown, CT
Learn from physicians, plant-based chefs, martial artists and other health professionals how to prevent and reverse chronic diseases by using lifestyle medicine practices. These practices transform patients’ lives through food, movement, relaxation techniques, behavior modification, sleep and community building. They are now recognized as the leading causes of health in hundreds of important international scientific studies, including those with millions of subjects. Our 12 monthly lectures include demonstrations and extended Q&A, covering the full range of practices and introducing a new innovative leader in the field each month.
Our February 15th speaker (#2) is Jeff Hush, the founder of Food & Movement Therapy and the Exec. Dir. of the Middletown Green Community Center.
The numbers of Americans who suffer from obesity, diabetes and heart disease has been skyrocketing for the past 40 years. It’s time to find new solutions to these chronic conditions.
Our organizers come from different health-care worlds. Jeff Hush was trained as a cultural and medical historian (UC Berkeley Ph.D. studies: 1985-1991); he founded Food & Movement Therapy (famtusa.org). Dr. Mike Kalinowski and Rev. Robyn Anderson are the Co-leads of the Health Enhancement Community Initiative in the greater Middletown area in alliance with the Ministerial Health Fellowship, the NAACP Health Committee of Middlesex County, and the Middletown Public Schools.
