Keynote Presentations

(with Michael Baime MD, Founder and Director, Penn Program for Mindfulness)

Dr. Baime began teaching mindfulness as a physician to support his patients with the challenges of illness. He has developed and facilitated mindfulness programming to serve a wide range of audiences, including educators to support teaching and learning; health care professionals to enhance empathy and deepen the therapeutic relationship; seriously ill individuals to cope with symptoms and manage the challenges of illness; and worksite leaders, employees, and targeted groups of professionals, to enhance focus, communication and work/life balance. At the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Baime is a Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine. He has developed and led numerous courses on mindfulness meditation and mind-body medicine and has published research in psychology, business, cognitive neuroscience and medicine. Dr. Baime has received the Provost’s Award for Distinguished Teaching at Penn as well as the Appel award for student work in psychiatry. In 2016 he was the recipient of the American College of Physicians Award for Distinguished Contributions in Behavioral Medicine. He is known for his innovative educational programming and his interactive and engaging presentations that combine cutting-edge science with practical solutions for enhancing productivity and managing stress.
