Come along to our Healthy Heart seminar in October 2017

The Portland Centre and the College of Medicine will soon present a seminar titled Managing Stress and Building Resilience for a Healthy Heart (for our Patients and Ourselves). The event takes place on Friday 6th October 2017 from 9am until 5:15pm, at Engineers’ House in Bristol.

This whole day seminar is aimed at healthcare professionals, CAM practitioners and students interested in finding out more about stress, resilience, and cardiovascular health from an Integrative Medicine (IM) perspective.

The day will deliver knowledge around models of stress and resilience, information about food and herbs for a healthy heart and some of the ground-breaking work of the Cardiologist’s Kitchen. There will also be an opportunity to experience creative writing, Tai Chi and mindfulness – the day has been designed to satisfy both left and right brain!

Speakers at the seminar include Dr Ali Khavandi (Consultant Cardiologist), Dr Andrew Morrice (GP), Dr Sally Moorcroft (Medical Herbalist), Helen Cooke (Nutritional Therapist), and Dr Elizabeth Thompson (Holistic Doctor and CEO of the Portland Centre for Integrative Medicine).
