Keynote Speaker - Dr Sara Lazar

Neuroscientist, Harvard University

Sara W. Lazar, PhD is an Associate Researcher in the Psychiatry Department at Massachusetts General Hospital and an Assistant Professor in Psychology at Harvard Medical School. The focus of her research is to elucidate the neural mechanisms underlying the beneficial effects of yoga and meditation, both in clinical settings and in healthy individuals. She is a contributing author to Meditation and Psychotherapy (Guilford Press). She has been practicing yoga and mindfulness meditation since 1994. Her research has been covered by numerous news outlets including The New York Times, USA Today, CNN, and WebMD, and her work has been featured in a display at the Boston Museum of Science.

Dr Lazar will present her research at Harvard concerning how mindfulness practice can change the structure and function of the brain and how these brain changes are related to the reduction of stress, depression, anxiety and pain.
