Symposium Session: Mind-Body Medicine for Improved Professional and Personal Outcomes

Join Theresa Yosuico Stahl, RD, LDN, FAND, and Becky Wojcik, MA, RD, LDN, RYT, for a session that will provide an overview of mind-body medicine modalities used in nutrition and wellness that help improve outcomes professionally and personally. Stahl and Wojcik will discuss examples from their own practices, as well as results from surveying other RDs, that highlight ways their nutrition peers are using these modalities in their work with clients and community members. Enjoy practicing mind-body techniques with Stahl, Wojcik, and other RDs in attendance, including deep breathing, mindful eating, and chair yoga to better understand how these practices reduce stress, create a connection with mind and body, increase self-awareness, and improve health outcomes.
