10 Years of Health and Wellness Will Be Celebrated at UPMC Center for Integrative Medicine Lecture


The Center for Integrative Medicine (CIM) at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) is celebrating a decade of health and wellness and will present an evening lecture entitled, “The Scientific Basis of Natural Treatment Approaches in Medicine,” by Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, M.D., co-founder of the CIM, at 7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 6 in the Herberman Conference Center at the UPMC Cancer Pavilion, 5150 Centre Ave., Shadyside.

Dr. Servan-Schreiber directed the CIM from 1999 to 2001 and headed up UPMC Shadyside’s division of psychiatry as director of the behavioral science teaching program from 1997-2001.

He returned to his native France in 2001 but remains clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and a lecturer at the University of Lyon in France. He has published more than 90 scientific monographs and was one of the founders of Doctors Without Borders USA, an organization awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in 1999.

He is author of the international best-seller, “Instinct to Heal: Curing Stress, Depression and Anxiety Without Drugs and Without Talk Therapy,” published in 32 countries. The book addresses topics such as coherence of heart rhythms; eye movement desensitization and reprocessing; dawn stimulation to reset biological clocks; acupuncture effects on the emotional brain; Omega-3 fatty acids and their effects on the emotional brain; physical exercise; and love and emotional communication.

The CIM at UPMC Shadyside, which is now directed by Ronald Glick, M.D., assistant professor of psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, was the first hospital-based center in Pittsburgh to combine natural healing practices with conventional medicine. Integrative medicine refers to the incorporation of evidence-based complementary therapies into conventional treatments for patients and is meant to work in conjunction with traditional medicine, providing a more holistic approach to healing mind, body and spirit.
