December 2, 2021: "Tai Chi for Whole Person Health and Healthy Aging" with Peter M. Wayne, PhD

Register

This presentation will introduce Tai Chi mind-body exercise as a multimodal intervention that is well-positioned to support integrative medicine’s goal of addressing whole person health. It will summarize evidence for its benefits related to fall prevention, mobility, cognition, and management of pain in older adults, as well as the physiological and psychological mechanisms underlying observed clinical benefits.

Speaker: 

Peter M. Wayne, PhD
