We’ve been invited to present a paper in April about our work here in Hillsboro with Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and a model of Medicine called Participatory Medicine. The paper is based the research we did here from 2007 to 2011. My research colleague Dr. Michael Christopher at Pacific University and I will present the paper. There is a Hillsboro Argus article about this research and work last year in partnership with our MBSR teaching intern Zeynep Sunbay-Bilgen (see Zeynep and me presenting a paper about our work last year in the picture above.). Our clinical research summary generally describes the work and results we have found in our research here.
More about all this later on when I’ll post information about a project with local doctors, therapists and MBSR alumni helping write a paper to be published soon in the Journal of Participatory Medicine.
