Workshop on Alternative Models of Health Care
Teaneck, N.J. (May 28, 2008) – Have you ever been curious about holistic health, acupuncture, feng shui and Reiki, but never had the time to pursue these subjects?
“What the ‘Health’?” is a two-day workshop designed to shed light on these subjects. Healthcare professionals who have specialized training in these practices will be available in four sessions, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on both days, Friday, June 27 and Saturday, June 28 on the Metropolitan Campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University.
This Health Fair and Continuing Education program introduces participants to the differences between the traditional medical model of healthcare and alternative models of care.
“The presenters, licensed professionals in their respective subjects, will provide experiential learning opportunities during this introduction to complementary alternative modalities,” says Diane Dettmore, an associate professor of nursing at the Henry P. Becton School of Nursing and Allied Health at FDU. A psychotherapist and Reiki master, she has been published in the psychiatric nursing and holistic health fields.
Helen Bet Givargis, a licensed acupuncturist, will focus on acupuncture and its relation to female health; to learn more about feng shui and space clearing for creating balance and harmony, join the session led by Laura White, a facilitator of meditation and feminine wisdom circles. Donna Carrazzone, a nurse who specializes in holistic health and Reiki, will discuss Reiki and balancing internal energy to promote health.
Discussing integrative nutrition, sugar, sweeteners and diet will be Camille Hebert, a holistic health counselor certified by the Institute of Integrative Nutrition affiliated with Teacher’s College, Columbia University.
Registered nurses will receive six Continuing Education Units (CEUs) per day as approved by the State Board of New Jersey in alliance with FDU’s Henry P. Becton School of Nursing and Allied Health. Participants can register for one or both days.
Fees are $100 for one day, and $160 for both days. Fees for students with valid IDs and senior citizens 62 or older with valid IDs are $67 for one day and $125 for both days.
Continental breakfasts, brown-bag lunches, conference materials, official processing of papers for professionals, Health Fair vendor access and donated prizes are included in the fees. As space is limited, early registration is suggested.
