St. Paul, Minn. — This summer the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA) will join forces with the American Holistic Medical Association (AHMA) in a parallel effort to mold the future of integrated healthcare. Their conference, “Holism in Action: Building Integrated Healthcare,” will be held June 7-10, 2006 at the Crowne Plaza St. Paul Riverfront Hotel in Minnesota. Renowned cardiologist and advocate for integrative healthcare Dr. Mimi Guarneri MD, F.A.C.C. will provide a keynote presentation at the conference.
Dr. Guarneri is the founder and medical director of the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine and author of the book The Heart Speaks. Through her experiences with patients enduring heart-disease, one of our nation’s leading health concerns, Dr. Guarneri discovered that the hearts of her patients were broken by much more than physical distress. Her presentation, “Lessons of the Heart,” will examine the complexities of the human heart from the mind-body-spirit approach of integrated healthcare, a multidisciplinary system that is highly patient-centered and focused on the whole person.
This joint conference seeks to educate and inspire nurses, physicians and health care providers from all walks of life to promote integrative improvements in healthcare that encourage competence, mutual respect and collaboration across all approaches for the benefit of the patient. Interest in the conference is growing rapidly nationwide with a large number of early registrants.¼/P>
