January 30, 2018: Vassar College alumni spanning 4 decades and 6 health fields gathered to share professional journeys, honest appraisal of their fields, personal anecdotes, a view towards the future, and what we all love, free tips! I was proud to be the moderator and co-organizer of this event, also big thanks to our hosts at Immunocologie.
Panelists included distinguished specialists in the field of Sports Medicine, Functional Nutrition, Elder Care, Mindfulness, Yoga, and The American Heart Association. They were eager to share common misconceptions of their fields, how they help those they serve, where they see the future of their professions heading, and current projects. Networking took place both before and after the event and many new connections were made. Cross collaboration among health professionals is vital to keep our minds sharp and to serve our clients best.
Two topics shared by all panelists: we need to keep moving in the direction of a whole-person approach to health, and meet our clients where they are in their wellness journey in order to personalize next steps.
