Attendees learn how medical research becomes medical evidence: the motivations, the barriers, the costs, the rewards, the pitfalls, the gold standards, the hidden agendas, and the questions to ask. Inside the World of Medical Evidence slide show
Beyond Twinkies and Treadmills: 10 (or 5) easy and cheap ways to improve your health.

This workshop features 10 (or 5, depending on the time allotted) simple and little-known lifestyle practices that reduce stress, increase energy, prevent disease, and activate the body’s natural healing potential.
