"Good Health" doesn't just consist of the lack of illness and being in good physical shape. Optimal health is only achieved when an individual maximizes five key dimensions in his or her life. Dr. Atkinson will explore these five dimensions of optimal well being, offering practical advice from recent medical research mixed with pearls of wisdom handed down through the ages for improving one's emotional, social, intellectual, physical and spiritual well being. "The 5 Keys to Optimal Health" is down-to-earth, warm, funny, and inspirational with loads of take home messages for both sexes and all ages.

With over 15 years of experience as a medical journalist, Dr. Holly Atkinson gives a fascinating talk on medicine and the media. She explores the challenges that consumers face today in sorting through the glut of medical information reported by the nation's press. One week the headlines rave about the benefits of antioxidant vitamins or calcium; the next week they’re panned. Does a low-fat diet protect you against disease or not? So, how much exercise do you really need? Should menopausal women ever take hormones? Dr. Atkinson gives practical tips on how to read the medical news and sort through the clutter, and in the process, gives answers to many of burning questions that the health conscious audience is dying to ask.

For decades, the medical establishment ignored many diseases of women, conducted medical experiments with only male subjects and virtually failed to recognize the role of gender in healthcare. In this speech, Dr. Atkinson brings the audience up to date on the latest in women's health: what's hot, what's not, what's controversial and what questions women need to ask their doctors. In the question and answer period that follows, she fields questions about the best medical treatments for women; for heart disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's disease, breast cancer, weight loss, menopause and more. Not to be missed!

Dr. Atkinson wrote what's now considered the definitive book on the subject. After 20 years, Women and Fatigue is still going strong, and Dr. Atkinson is still getting standing ovations from audiences when she delivers this incredibly inspirational speech. Fatigue is a very real problem for women that, too often, families and physicians fail to take seriously. Dr. Atkinson stresses -- to the great relief of women—that fatigue is not a figment of the imagination. Most of time, there are several causes of a woman's fatigue and the good news is that something can be done about them. Dr. Atkinson shares with the audience the major energy drainers and major energy boosters, and gives countless practical tips on how to tip the balance in favor of the boosters. Every woman will come away from this speech having laughed a lot, and learned a lot not only about how to conquer her fatigue, but how to live her best life.

Ulcers don’t come from what you eat…they come from what is eating you! In the midst of so many mergers, downsizing, and buyouts, Michael says stress is still more often the result of what we value than the result of difficult situations or people. Today’s mandate to accomplish more in less time and to do it with fewer people leaves in its wake many who are searching for ways to cope . He teaches techniques of managing pressure, change, fear, anger, and worry. In a nation that nearly consumes its weight in antacid pills, this presentation will help your people overcome burnout. "My presentations are like baths; the effect may not last forever, but everybody could use one." Michael Broome

National Geographic writer Dan Buettner has traveled the globe to uncover the best strategies for longevity and happiness. He identified Blue Zones—places where have the greatest life expectancy and where more people reach age 100 than anywhere else. Working with a team of experts, Buettner distilled their secrets into nine common denominators he calls the Power 9™. What is the optimal diet for making it to a healthy age 90?  Should you be running marathons or doing yoga?  What supplements work?  Does stress really shorten your life?  Dan debunks the most common myths and offers a science-backed blue print for the average American to live another 12 quality years.  Using National Geographic photography and a dynamic delivery, Dan takes audiences to each of the Blue Zones and leaves audience with a actionable plan to live longer, healthier lives.

Science shows that where we live--not education, marital status or wealth—is the biggest, controllable factor that determines our happiness.  So where should we live? A tropical island? Paris? Las Vegas? It's not where you think.

Working with Gallup, The World Values Survey and the World Data Base on Happiness, Dan and his team found the three pockets around the world where people report the highest level of well-being—or happiness. Then, on assignment for National Geographic, he researched each of these hotspots and distilled down the common denominators in each place.  What can governments do to maximize the well-being of their citizens?   And more importantly, what can we do as individuals to stack the deck in our favor to maximize happiness?

His presentation incorporates National Geographic photographs and short video clips. It transports audiences to places around the globe where people are living happy and meaningful lives. It offers universal strategies on how to best achieve that life balance we all seek.

In 2009, Albert Lea, Minnesota, a statistically average American city, completed a one year community health experiment that raised life expectancy by three years, trimmed a collective 12,000 pounds off waistlines and dropped healthcare costs of city workers by some 40%.  USA Today, Good Morning America, AARP, ABC Nightline, CNN and U.S. News and World Report all covered the story.   Harvard's Dr. Walter Willett, writing in Newsweek magazine called the results “stunning”.   Dan Buettner, founder and director of the AARP/Blue Zones Vitality Project created a “perfect storm” of health that transformed a city. He tells the fascinating story of how one typically obese American city of 18,000 reversed the trend and also got happier. Dan's presentation takes audiences on the year long journey as this town adopts 28 evidence based ways to change their environment to live longer and better. They got healthier without thinking about it.

Alastair Campbell knows all about mental illness. At 29, the youngest national news editor in Britain, he had a drink- and pressure-induced nervous breakdown, was arrested and hospitalized and diagnosed with depression and addiction issues. He rebuilt himself and his career and went on to take on one of the toughest jobs going—running the media operation for Tony Blair in Britain’s highly aggressive media and political environment. He is now a global campaigner on mental illness, fighting to break down stigma and taboo and also to urge business to better understand mental health and mental illness, and to see the advantages of doing so. Campbell’s latest book, Winners, has a chapter on ‘the extreme mind,’ setting out the great figures of history, from Lincoln to Churchill, Florence Nightingale to Charles Darwin—and great winners of today—who have had what doctors define as mental illness. He argues not just for better understanding but better appreciation of what people living on the edge have to offer.

Anxiety, insomnia, muscle tension, fatigue, high blood pressure and anger are just a few of the physical symptoms of stress. Stress not only affects your body, but also creates behaviors that can lead to social withdrawal. This presentation will explore the nature of our mind and the various factors in our lives that cause us stress. Audience members will learn simple meditation techniques that can nourish the mind, which will lead to increased focus, greater productivity, improved relationships and better health.
