Holistic physician Susan Lord MD will join the faculty of The American Meditation Institute (AMI) for its 9th annual 30 credit hour mind/body medicine CME conference on meditation, yoga and diaphragmatic breathing for physicians and other health care professionals, October 24-28, 2017 at the Cranwell Resort and Spa in Lenox, Massachusetts.

Dr. Susan Lord graduated from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and is in private practice in Great Barrington, MA focusing on prevention and treatment through mindful living and lifestyle changes. From 1996-2007, she served as Course Director for the “Food as Medicine” program at the Center for Mind/Body Medicine in Washington, DC.

According to Dr. Lord: “Yoga Science teaches us how to heal the physical, mental and emotional imbalances in the mind-body-sense complex. The practice of AMI Meditation and its allied disciplines optimize physiologic function from the cellular level on up, building health and resilience.

This entire 30 CME conference is dedicated to providing quality, comprehensive and evidence-based education to physicians and other health care providers.
