Medical Careers: New Roles for Growing Demands
Meg Jordan, Ph.D., RN, CWP, Professor and Chair of Integrative Health Studies, California Institute of Integral Studies; CEO, Global Medicine Enterprise
Come learn how you can benefit from being with a health coach, and how it is vastly different from traditional health education. Many see an overwhelming need for supportive allies to facilitate the latest motivational science and art of adopting healthy behaviors, as chronic disease burgeons and patient-physician face-time shrinks. This session will provide four big ideas from research in neuroscience, addiction, social ranking and creativity that are moving the new field of health coaching from the margins of the medical landscape to a central role. Dr. Jordan educates masters-level integrative wellness coaches at CIIS and serves as a board member, establishing educational benchmarks for their training and eventual national certification.
