Healthy Mind, Healthy Body: A Woman’s Guide To Wellness In Today’s Challenging World

Tuesday evenings, October 30 – December 11

7:00 to 8:45 p.m., Main Campus, 513 Parnassus Avenue

REGISTRATION FEES
General Public:  $75

Today’s fast-paced women can find themselves caught up in what has been called the “Superwoman Syndrome.” Women often feel pressure to achieve in many domains: at home, with their families, in their work, in caring for friends, and even with their appearance. Many times, women do not have the time or energy to care for themselves, or even to get enough sleep. This course will explore these unique pressures and investigate their origins, physiological impacts, as well as current, scientifically-proven strategies for managing priorities, fostering wellness, and achieving a balanced portfolio for health.

This program was sponsored in part by a grant from the George Family Foundation to the UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine.

 

Course chair:
Margaret A. Chesney, PhD, Director, Osher Center for Integrative Medicine; Professor in Residence, UCSF School of Medicine
