Description

1:30-2:30 Matthew Sanford talk "A Mind-Body Approach to Healthcare"

  • Matthew Sanford’s inspirational story begins at age 13 when he survived a devastating car accident that killed his father and sister and left him permanently paralyzed from the chest down. Matthew is a pioneer in developing a mind-body approach to healing and recovery. He speaks to institutions, healthcare professionals, complementary healthcare providers and general audiences within the field of integrative health. His work has led Integrative Health Advocate/Fashion Designer Donna Karen to call Matthew “…a rising star in the integrative healthcare movement.”

  • Matthew has developed a groundbreaking mind-body approach to both living with a disability and the rehabilitation process. He is also a pre-eminent leader in adapting yoga for people living with disabilities. For this work, Matthew was recognized as a national hero and Quality of Life winner in the 2008 Volvo for Life Awards. Matthew speaks to all audiences within healthcare organizations, including doctors, nurses, rehabilitation professionals, caregivers, patients and families.
