The Penn Arts and Sciences Professional Women’s Alliance invites you to join fellow alumnae for a special program on mindfulness-based stress reduction, created specifically for busy professionals who are managing competing demands every single day. Attendees will learn how to practice mindfulness in order to increase focus and mental clarity and enhance communication skills, energy, health, happiness, effectiveness, and productivity.

Did you know? Practicing mindfulness actually changes the structure of the brain. It strengthens the executive control function, improves working memory and helps you focus on the information you need to perform, resulting in better performance in challenging situations.   

Speaker:  Dr. Michael Baime is the founder and director of the Penn Program for Mindfulness and clinical associate professor of medicine at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He is a recipient of the Provost’s Award for Distinguished Teaching at Penn. Nationally recognized for his innovative mindfulness trainings, Dr. Baime has developed a wide variety of customized programs for professionals across many different industries.
