Discussions on Mindfulness and Mental Health

Featuring:

Simon Goldberg PhD’17, assistant professor in the Department of Counseling Psychology and affiliate faculty at the Center for Healthy Minds

Many people have heard of mindfulness before — but what is it and how does it correspond to better mental health and well-being? Dr. Goldberg will share insights from his award-winning work.

Dinner will include cold hors d’oeuvre stations and a hot carving station featuring roasted turkey breast and your choice of two of the following accompaniments: chef’s choice vegetables, macaroni and cheese, or salad with champagne vinaigrette. Each guest will receive one complimentary beverage. A cash bar will be available for all subsequent drinks.
