Dean Ornish, MD (President & Founder,Preventive Medicine Research Institute)
Webinar Series: The World Has Changed
Webinar Topic: How to leverage simple lifestyle remedies to lead a healthier life
Webinar Date: March 13, 2021
We tend to think of advances in medicine as a new drug, laser, or surgical procedure, something high-tech and expensive. This session will discuss the power of comprehensive lifestyle changes, reviewing more than 30 years of research using high-tech, state-of-the-art measures to prove the power of low-tech, low-cost, and often ancient interventions. Dr. Ornish will talk about proven strategies for motivating people to make lifestyle changes as well as guide one to personalize a way of eating and living based on one’s needs, genes, and preferences.
Dean Ornish, M.D., is known as “the father of lifestyle medicine” and the first to prove that lifestyle medicine can reverse the progression of many chronic diseases including coronary heart disease, early-stage prostate cancer, and cellular aging (by lengthening telomeres). He is also the founder and president of the nonprofit Preventive Medicine Research Institute, clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco and the University of California, San Diego, and the author of seven books, all national bestsellers. The “Ornish diet” has been rated “#1 for Heart Health” by a panel of independent experts at U.S. News & World Report for eight years from 2011-2019.
