Here’s something my fellow Chicagoans won’t want to miss. On Sunday, Oct. 21st, New York Times best-selling author Dr. Mark Hyman comes to Chicago to speak on “Emerging Approaches to Chronic Illness: Achieving Wellness within Your Community.”
Dr. Hyman, who is chairman of the Institute for Functional Medicine, will lead the event with Sandra Scheinbaum, PhD, founder of Feed Your Mind Wellness™ and Marlon Kleinman, MD, medical consultant.
Dr. Hyman will talk about the impact of our lifestyle, culture and traditions on overall wellness. He’ll explore how the unique customs within our communities, including the rituals of holiday meals and religious gatherings, are contributing to chronic illness, including “diabesity” — conditions ranging from blood sugar imbalance to obesity and diabetes. I can’t think of a better time to reflect on how our upcoming holiday celebrations will influence our overall health.
Through conversation and Q & A, Drs. Hyman, Scheinbaum, and Kleinman will offer ideas on how community members can combat illness together, including diet choices that can reverse chronic illness and the power of support networks. Maybe it’s time to turn to the community as a catalyst for living a healthier and longer life.
