Evelyn Chu: Meditation: Medical Benefits

Event Date: February 2nd, 2020 at 11:00am - 12:00pm
Address : 516 Prospect Street, Maplewood, NJ, USA

Evelyn Chu is a family physician who completed her medical training at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and her residency at Tufts University. During her residency at Tufts, she had the opportunity to participate in the Mind Body Institute at Harvard, which was run by Herbert Benson, a cardiologist at Harvard Medical School. This introduction to mind body medicine, meditation, and mindfulness has strongly influenced the way she approaches her patients with illnesses as diverse as anxiety and depression to chronic pain and hypertension.

We will cover the basics of meditation, and the relaxation response, and explore some of the clinically studied medical benefits of a meditation practice. We will try some breathing exercises together and perhaps a guided meditation as well.

Evelyn is a resident of South Orange and a proud member of the Society.
