- Digital Summit
Scientific research can be complex, confusing, and occasionally contradictory. In today’s digital world, patients are more connected than ever to healthcare advances and may come to you with questions about new and emerging research. Therefore, it is incumbent upon healthcare practitioners to effectively analyze scientific research and extract the appropriate information for the patient.
In this guide, we review the different types of scientific studies and how to understand and analyze a scientific paper.

GenomicInsight™: The clinician’s tool in the practical application of SNP testing in precision medicine

Fundamental to the practice of medicine is the acquisition and dissemination of the most validated and impactful recommendations for those in our care. But all too commonly, this information goes unheeded. Why? Our modern world is fundamentally reshaping our brains, altering our decision-making towards impulsivity, instant gratification and the type of choices that lead to poor health and unhappiness. The structural and functional wiring of our brains is constantly rearranged by our interaction with the world around us. And this process can either be consciously harnessed for our own benefit or externally manipulated for the benefit of others. This presentation exposes the mental hijacking that undermines each and every one of us, and presents practical tools to help reclaim our ability to make better decisions, strengthen our relationships with others, and maintain healthier habits.

Yoga practice has steadily grown in the U.S. by over 50 percent in adults and more than doubled in children from 2012 to 2017. It is primarily practiced for general wellness and disease prevention or to improve energy. A growing body of high-quality research continues to validate its efficacy for a wide variety of health conditions including major depression, anxiety, supportive cancer care, hypertension, cardiovascular disease risk, diabetes, pain conditions, improved cognition, and much more. Research on neuroanatomy and nervous system activity are identifying the underlying biological mechanisms that elucidate yoga’s role in health and wellness.
