In this workshop, we will give a brief Introduction to mind body medicine, including the current research and benefits it can have for the individual. A short "yoga anatomy" flow will stretch and strengthen the body while highlighting musculoskeletal function, so wear comfy clothes! Lastly, we will guide you through a meditation (a form of mindful daydreaming) to enhance your creativity, reenergize, and unwind. We will conclude by providing additional resources and taking questions.
This webinar is free for members; $25 for non-members.

David Resuehr, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Cell, Developmental & Integrative Biology at The University of Alabama at Birmingham
Dr. Resuehr received his Ph.D. in biology from the University of Hamburg in 2004. He then continued his research at Florida State University and then was accepted into the Vanderbilt University "Scientist Educator Program" where he was trained in gross anatomy instruction for three years. He has since taught anatomy to students of several health science disciplines, including Medicine, Dentistry, Optometry, Physician Assistant and Nursing Anesthesia. One of Dr. Resuehr's (many) interests is Mind Body Medicine and its utility in helping us maintain a healthy work-life balance and a sound mind. He has taught MBM special topics courses for several years to medical students in the School of Medicine and applies some of its fundamental principles in his daily life. He is a learning community lead mentor in the SOM and is Director of gross anatomy for physician assistants for the School of Health Professions (among many other commitments).
