This month's meeting will discuss how stress is one of the risk factors for cardiac disease. Neurologist, Roger Gietzen, MD, will discuss “Meditation for Health and Happiness.” He will include the benefits of meditation, with a focus on personal experiences and explain how he integrates it with other mind body spirit practices.
