Globally, people are living longer. What are the most compelling ways to ensure a sustainably healthy life? In this live-streamed event, author and speaker Deepak Chopra discussed the important connections between mind, immunity, genes and body.
Dr. Chopra also explored how chronic stress and inflammation can undermine immunity and health, ultimately seeking to empower people who wish to nurture their wellbeing over their lifetimes. He also discussed how these insights play out within public health, particularly as individuals and societies cope with epidemics, environmental threats, superbugs, aging and other challenges.
Dr. Chopra also referenced his new book, "The Healing Self: A Revolutionary New Plan to Supercharge Your Immunity and Stay Well for Life," co-authored with Harvard neurology professor Rudolph Tanzi.
