Telluride's Inaugural Wellness Symposium

March 20th to the 22nd

Why do certain populations live longer and healthier lives? How much exercise do we really need? What are the risks and rewards of supplements, including multivitamins? Should women be getting regular mammograms and what are the alternatives for breast cancer screening on the horizon?

These and other important health-related questions around the subjects of longevity, micro-nutrients, common medical disorders, and nutrition will be addressed at a Wellness Symposium that promises to reveal findings, not opinions, from evidence-based medical research. The three days of seminars mark the launch of a series that will continue this summer in Telluride.

Alan Safdi, one of the most popular speakers at the Telluride First Foundation’s Integrative Wellness Summit, whose column, To Your Health, appears regularly on Telluride Inside… and Out ; and William Renner, a radiologist and internationally renowned speaker.
