VAIL – The Vail Symposium announced this week a September series of thought-provoking and innovative programs around consciousness and integrative medicine.
In its second year, Living at Your Peak, the umbrella for the Vail Symposium’s annual focus on health and wellness, will feature thought leaders and experts in a variety of non-traditional medical practices. Panel discussions will take place every Friday in September from 5-7:30 p.m.
“The ‘Bridging the Gap’ Friday series will kick off with a program on Thursday, Sept. 5 designed to make the connection between traditional medical practice and consciousness and energy healing, featuring Dr. Len Wisneski of George Washington University Medical Center,” said Alby Segall, president of the Vail Symposium. “An ever-increasing focus on non-traditional medical practices is part of our present-day dialogue and certainly our future. This aligns beautifully with the mission of the Vail Symposium to bring such thoughtful and often times, cutting-edge, insights to the Vail Valley.”
On Sept. 6, Wisneski will be joined on a panel by Dr. Brent Bauer from the Mayo Clinic and Dr. Lorenzo Cohen from MD Anderson and Dr. Lisa Corbin from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. The entire Living at Your Peak September schedule will be published in early May.
The Vail Symposium also announced a transition in leadership from current Chairman of the Board Jim Ruh to longtime Vail Valley resident and board member Rohn Robbins. Robbins also serves as chairman of the Vail Valley Charitable Fund board of directors.
Liana Moore, executive director for the past three years, will be leaving the Vail Symposium to assume the position of marketing director for the Antlers at Vail.
“Liana’s and Jim’s service to the Vail Symposium have been instrumental to growing the importance of our mission in the community,” Robbins said. “We are very pleased that both she and Jim will continue as members of the Vail Symposium board of directors.”
