Symposium: Integrative Health in Athletic Performance
Saturday, October 29 – 8:15 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Hannaford Hall, University of Southern Maine
The Center for Wellness Leadership (CWL) is a new nonprofit organization based in Portland established to raise awareness for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). Such practices include acupuncture, yoga, mind-body medicine, naturopathy and more. CWL has complied a thorough database to serve as a one-stop resource for information surrounding all CAM modalities that aid in overall wellness. On Saturday, October 29, CWL will present a signature symposium event: “Integrative Health in Athletic Performance.” WCM is proud to be a sponsor of this important event.
The symposium will explore how complementary and alternative therapies enhance athletic performance, reduce injuries and improve mental focus. A panel of professional athletes, including Dave Cowens of the Celtics, will discuss their experiences using alternative medicine.
